Many Indian doctors, engg. and scientists after aquiring their initial professional qualification in India migrate to other developed countries with a view to obtain higher qualification, but generally due to attractive packages provided abroad they do not return to India. In this way huge amount of resources invested by our govt. goes in vain as they dont get the return for their investment.This is Actually BRAIN DRAIN. Reasons for this may be bad reservation policies where student of SC and ST gets admission in some good colg. on securing just 35-40% marks whereas general students are waiting for their chances even on 85-90% marks. Other reasons may be corruption, nepotism etc. But it has got some benifits also: 1)Reduces employment particularly among educated people 2)helped in aquiring close relations between India and USA on Silicon Valley matter in USA. So, in the nutshell, acc to me, educated people should go to other countries to carry out researches etc but should not forget our motherland and try to server her. Further, this so called brain drain can be stopped if better research and training facilities are provided in our own country.

I don't think brain drain needs to be banned. A lot of money is coming to India from Indians working abroad. Also, Indians are getting lots of possibilities and chances in foriegn countries comapred to India. Do you think Kalpana Chowla would have been gone to space if she were in India? She got the chance only because she were in USA. We need to look into those issues too.

Hello my friend, thanks for your response. Sorry for my late response. But i would like to say that I am not in full agreement of what u say. Although u r right that lots of money is coming frm abroad, but just visualize a broad situation, that why Indians want to go abroad, bcoz they lack facilities here. If they r given ample opportunities here in India, why would they go abroad. Taking an example of Kalpana Chawla. Why she wanted to join NASA, bcoz their is no such organisation here in India. If it were, she might not have gone to USA. Further, I am not totally against brain drain. If an opportunity lies there to make India proud, go there and utilize ur skills. I am against the fact that most people wants to go abroad to earn money. And further, I would like to contradict the fact that lots of money is coming to India. Do u think this money is used in welfare of India, or have made India proud frm any perspective.

I do agree that brain drain does hits our country a bit. However, in recent years, educational fees for institutions like IITs and Regional Engineering Colleges and other such institutions which are semi-funded by government has been increased significantly. So, its not that big financial drain on our country's resources. Continuing low economic growth (and even partial slump) in US and many European countries is leading to many NRIs and even many Indian origin people born outside India are returning to India. Here are more observations on this issue from my side: 1)Putting more checks on people going outside India to study/settle abroad could be counterproductive since if they stay back, they would be more dissatisfied and that won't be good for us. 2)People living abroad send great amount of remittance back home. Indians living abroad are one of the highest remittance senders worldwide. 3)NRIs sometimes do bring back technology as well as finance to set new business in India. So, NRIs and PIOs (People of Indian origin) do contribute towards Indian economic growth.

banning brain drain results only in unemployment..... though we do have knowledge we lack industrial expertise.....so its better that we get dem from other countries....

It is no doubt a good suggestion but you cannot restrict brain drain unless you can provide the infrastructure to attract the scholars in various fields.
