India is fast becoming a preferred training destination for students and professionals from developing countries. Numerous factors have contributed to the impressive increase in flow of overseas students and sponsored trainees. The article explores some of the main factors that have contributed to the impressive inflow of foreign trainees to India.
India enjoys the highest ranking in terms of numbers of technical and skilled manpower among developing countries. In the past India has seen tardy growth on account of brain drain but today the situation has improved a lot due to the impetus provided to domestic industry which has opened up new sectors and employment avenues. Several highly skilled professionals settled abroad for years on second thoughts are considering viable options back in India.
Liberalization of Policies
In the recent past India has eased its foreign direct investment norms and cut down on red tapism to lure foreign venture capitalists to invest in India. Our honourable Prime Minister, Mr Narendra Modi has given a big boost to the ideology ‘MAKE IN INDIA’ incorporating ‘zero tolerance – zero defect.’ In other words he stressed that through liberalization of policies and strict quality control measures India will become a favourable manufacturing base for global manufacturing corporations.
Industrial growth for its sustenance requires upkeep of high quality standards, up gradation of skills, adoption of latest technologies and provision of quality education. Technical education standards have seen a marked improvement through improvements of standards in technical institutes to match global requirements at affordable cost. Such measures have attracted large number of students from developing countries and the numbers are seeing an increase each year.
Existing Industrial Base
India has seen an enviable growth in popular industrial sectors since its independence,notably in
- Power generation
- IT and software development
- Defence production
- Petroleum and petrochemicals
Industrial growth has also benefited greatly from chain of government and privately owned R&D and commercial testing laboratories.
Such laboratories are equipped with modern state of art facilities and are spread across the length and breadth of the country. Stringent quality of manufactured goods is maintained through adherence to both national and international standards based on accurate and reliable reporting of results Our own training initiative Lab – Training.com is the outcome of our expertise and belief that sharing of skills and knowledge on analytical techniques plays a crucial role in the upkeep of quality standards of manufactured goods.
India is a country rich in cultural heritage and biodiversity. A visitor to India gets an opportunity to visit places of immense natural beauty and monuments of acclaimed heritage such as the Taj Mahal in Agra. In the recent past India has also emerged as an important medico- tourism hub due to availability of advanced medical facilities at affordable cost. Overseas students and short time visitors often take benefit of medical consultations and treatments during their visits.
Development always comes with its share of responsibilities. The world today has become one global family and the developed nations should strive to raise the standards of the underdeveloped countries to maintain harmony and raise the overall living standards. India stands committed to this ideology and will always keep its doors open for sharing its skills and knowledge for the betterment of humanity. In the coming time Indian scientists and technocrats will be called upon to share an important global responsibility,namely, ‘TRAIN -IN- INDIA’ .
