India’s gain is Indian’s loss

The emerging scenario with regards to the outsourcing of jobs can be called both advantageous and disadvantageous to India and Indians. Surprised? Then read on..
India has always been favoured a outsourcing destination and various companies have opened their branches in this country in cities like, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune and Gurgaon. But what is to be noted is that while the Indians in this country are being employed with these jobs, on the other hand jobs are being lost in the other countries.

Peculiarly enough, it is not just the natives of those countries who are losing their jobs but majority are Indians. Strange but true! Most of the NRI community who are doing jobs in these firms have lost their jobs due to outsourcing. And these NRIs are forced to look elsewhere to find livelihood in the country they have adopted. The increasing tough measures being adopted by those countries are making it tough to find alternate employment. And these individuals are trying to find an employment back in India.

Of some recent statistics, nearly 2,00,000 NRIs have posted their resumes in the MNCs located in India. Though the situation is not alarming presently, it could trigger off some scary thought among the NRI community. Lets hope that this phase passes away and creates a way where everyone (including Indians and all other qualified people) find jobs according to their skill levels.

  1. Interesting Krshy, however we need to understand one thing that the phenomenon under which the Indians abroad are trying to find jobs back in India is not because of the Outsourcing and that they are loosing jobs in the country they have adopted. If we would have a closer look at the overall scenario, then it is the Reverse Brain Drain that is reflecting the staggering figure as identified int he post. The Indians abroad are lured by the Growth Rate of Indian Economy and the Better Packages back home. The stagnant Economic conditions in most of the Developed Countries and better growth potentials are also the reason for why Indians Abroad are looking at heading back Home…… Apparently you missed this perspective.

  2. Mayank, the way the rise of the numbers in those heading back home also indicates a deteriorating security conditions…But guess what would be competition for employment opportunities if most of these NRIs head back home? will it be possible to resettle them??
