India seems to be having a massive brain drain. We read about young Software Engineers IT Professionals and Medical Doctors migrating to USA Europe and elsewhere looking for lucrative jobs thus in a way crippling India. What can the Government or Private sector do to stop this exodus.

You are right Maniam, we can easily blame these young people for not serving their nation but can you possibly suggest the justified ground for their profession that does not undermine their qualifications....

I do not object much to this idea. because our country is not being able to provide apt conditions for healthy occupation. Many qualified people are not getting jobs according to their status and thus work force is all at loss in India. Its however, better to serve someone than serve no one.....An Indian citizen who stays abroad for employment or business or takes up a vocation outside India or who stays abroad under circumstances indicating an intention to stay there for an uncertain period, is a non-resident. Persons posted in United Nations organizations and officials deputed abroad by Central/state government and public sector undertakings on temporary assignments are also treated as non-residents. Non-resident foreign citizens of Indian origin are treated on par with non-resident Indian citizens. Indian citizens who go abroad for business visit, medical treatment, study and such other purposes which do not indicate their intention to stay outside India for an indefinite period are considered as persons resident in India during their temporary absence from India.

unemployment in India has been an overused excuse by the one s who are responsible for such brain drain and also by the ones who are desperately trying to contribute to the same. The opportunities inside the country suddenly seem small and worthless in front of the starry image of the west. More than anything else, better lifestyle and a developed country name to flaunt, has lead people into migrating their working areas from their native place to a western country. But the question remains is it really so starry as it seems? Are there seriously no good job opportunities in India? Well, had this question come a decade earlier the answer would have been a tragic yes, but today when many multi national companies are desperately trying to establish a branch in India, the verity differs Going to foreign countries to earn can be beneficial for your native land only in case you are sending back money in foreign currency and adding to the countries funds and also going with an intention of returning. The patriotism should not be lost to personal fervor.

The brain drain has been on our consciousness for over 30 years. India has steadily exported some of its brightest youngsters. From the early 1960s onwards, a large fraction of the graduating class at the IITs has left India. This is one of the less noticed consequences of globalisation: the integration of the world market for high skill individuals. Globalisation has reduced the differences between countries, so that the skills of a good doctor or a good futures trader or a good economist are highly portable across the globe. The transactions costs , or the fixed costs of moving across locations, are lower than ever before . This gives us a fairly well-integrated global market for high-end human capital.

Unless the concept of love for the country is inculcated through the educational system itself, we will have people only going after money. All our leaders and politicians talk of reforms and development, but virtually nothing is done for establishing the educations system. Also this needs dedicated teachers who know the value of sacrifice, sharing and love for the country. raising the salary scales, giving computers to the students, teaching the sylabus, going for tutions and learinign how to get marks will never help. It has to be in the heart and mind - the love, dedication for the country - even in absence of returns in any terms. In spite of such a rich background of spitituality, knowledge, and natural wealth, if we are suffering from brain drain, it is the fault of our education system.

well .. i cant agree with your last point that if we are suffering from brain drain, it is the fault of our education system.On the contrary i feel that Indian education system is counted amongst the best in the world. The land of Aryabhatta has given many intelligent minds to the world. The Indian system of education follows a smooth hierarchy from basics to perfection. The school drop outs in India are very less as compared to other parts of the world.

Well, many people have various views on the issue but now we need to find out the solution. The Indian system of education follows a smooth hierarchy from basics to perfection. The school drop outs in India are very less as compared to other parts of the world. But still there remains a huge uneducated population that sometimes nullifies the effect of the good things that the intelligent minds of India do After completing their education in India, people often leave for foreign countries in search of better working environment and pay package on account of unemployment. Unemployment in India has been an overused excuse by the one s who are responsible for such brain drain and also by the ones who are desperately trying to contribute to the same. The opportunities inside the country suddenly seem small and worthless in front of the starry image of the west. More than anything else, better lifestyle and a developed country name to flaunt, has lead people into migrating their working areas from their native place to a western country. But the question remains is it really so starry as it seems? Are there seriously no good job opportunities in India? Well, had this question come a decade earlier the answer would have been a tragic yes, but today when many multi national companies are desperately trying to establish a branch in India, the verity differs Going to foreign countries to earn can be beneficial for your native land only in case you are sending back money in foreign currency and adding to the countries funds and also going with an intention of returning. In 2006, Prime Minister of India Dr Manmohan Singh said that Government is contemplating ways of making the working environment in cutting edge departments more attractive to stop the flight of scientific talent from the country. Singh said that he had asked senior officials to work out measures and devise ways to make careers in science more attractive. But, it still continues. Being A poor country India cannot increase its revenue with the support of eminent educational institutions. It also doesn t want to stop brain drain. As a result, we are losing on both fronts. If India allocates a considerable proportion of its budgetary allotment, then it can make India an educational hub of qualified manpower. But for this, private sector should also come forward to achieve this objective. India should step up investment in science and technology and improve the infrastructure to stop brain drain. The only solution is offer better package and facility and stop brain drain. On the parts of an individual, he or she should not be so attracted towards money that country s benefit is totally forgotten. Everybody has the right to earn money but we should put a limit to that, can t we?

Thank you Maniam for raising such an excellent issue. Brain drain has actually become a problem and a subject of worry for the under developed and developing countries like INDIA. 70% Students in these countries think that there are much better opportunities outside India to work but they forget that this act actually is effecting the per capita income and hence the National income. Students study here, take all the knowledge from their native countries and when it comes to do something in their nation and add to the nations income they go abroad saying that INDIA does not have career opportunity. Indians ..specially the youth has to understand that today India is no less than any other country in the world...India has made drastic advancement in all spheres be it science and technology astronauts like Kalpana Chawla , education, entertainment bollywood is world famous , employment why not there are so many MNC s and BPO s which employ thousands of youth and yes not to forget the recent organising of the IPL the Indian premiere league...first ever in the world . These students who go to foreign nations to earn should understand that for all the social evils that are prevailing in the society like poverty, hunger etc they are responsible somehow or the other because instead of developing their own nation they take their studies to another nation and add to the national income of that country where on the other hand in countries like India the eating and consuming population keeps increasing while the earning and contributing population lessens due to this BRAIN DRAIN.

The best counting of our educational system, the smooth hierarchy, less drop outs, land of Aryabhatta etc is well placed in history only. It is very pleasant to read and hear. I do not know how much of real education you have seen. It is a pitiable condition of our education system. It is not enough that you and I get good education. The true mind and spirit of nation is in the villages and amongst those who cannot afford or even do not know about education. We the well qualified go abrod for money, forget our country, our countrymen, get lost in the glamorous life, invite our friends and relatives there and they also settle there. We come back like cowards only when there is war or some calamity. We forget that we have received he education at the cost of our country, and our countrymen. Our education gives us only greed for money, selfishness and neglect for the country. Or else why should we not use that higher education and money earned for sharing with our countrymen ? Very few are there who are doing it, but there efforts do not meet the extent of our population and its need. Unless that spirit of selflessness, devotion and country first is in our blood, we will only look for money whereever we get it. possibly then there is no difference between those brain drained and the thieves. I am sorry for being very outspoken but that is the truth.

massive brain drain is nothing but excuse, there is job opportunities for hardworker, i feel people go abroad for money even though they are treated as 2nd granded and ready to leave worsed then their home country , these are temp pheonmenon, they can t enjoy life as we, restriction is predominent factor for them, the phenomenon of brain drain is old wine, now -a-days any body can go abroad, see their status and comment, it will take much longer time in abroad to settled down then in india. we are emotional and lift talent emotionally. India is heaven

By the way, is the Government of India doing anything to arrest this problem of Brain Drain. Infact, they should come out with attractive packages to woo back those professionals who have already migrated to the western countries.

To deal the serious problem of brain drain India has initiated reverse brain drain. Realizing how many scientists, doctors, engineers and other professionals they loose every year, Indian government is taking steps to lure them back to the country. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is taking steps to stem brain drain by offering very attractive careers in science and industry.

An interesting information I came across which I am posting here for the benefit of all: The UNDP estimates that India loses 2 billion a year because of the emigration of computer experts to the U.S. Indian students going abroad for their higher studies costs India a foreign exchange outflow of 10 billion annually.
