Bangalore: A new trend seen emerging amongst Indians abroad is that the young Indians are leaving their jobs there to return home and take up teaching in Indian higher education institutions. This may be boon for a country that lacks in quality lecturers.

The trend can be fallout of the expansion of the higher education in the country. India has opened eight new Institutes of Technology (IITs), 12 central universities and three Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) in the last two years.


Other reasons for the reverse brain drain include opportunity to work in one s own country, job insecurity abroad and increasing research funding. The young academicians say they have greater academic freedom and better working conditions here in India. 

Case in point, Rahul Ribeiro, 36, an engineer, went to the U.S. for further studies and is now back to India and is working as an Assistant Professor at IIT Delhi. Having worked as a marine engineer for a few years, Rahul joined Texas A&M University and had no plans to come back to India soon. "I wanted to work in biomedical sciences," says Rahul, a PhD in materials science and engineering. "I have ambitious plans and want to develop material that can replace tissues in the body."

Then one day he came across an advertisement for faculty positions at IIT Delhi. He recorded his application through a presentation and sent it, which was followed by a telephonic interview and he was in.

With better opportunities, and growing demands for good faculty across major institutions in India, it is just about time that more Indians return home from abroad.
