  • The IT professionals of India prefer to remain in their own country when offered a good professional growth opportunity, instead of migrating to US. The trend today is actually reversing from 1997 when almost 30-40 percent of the qualified people preferred to leave the country for lucrative jobs in USA, now there is a reversal of the trend having more than 45 percent people wanting to return to India and start their own ventures or pursue careers which are now more satisfying and well paying than ever. The reversal of this trends is actually owed to the shift in bases of many developed countries who offer good career growth right in India
  • The professionals of Indian origin, particularly in computer field, are recognized all over the world as better than the best - which again allows for the win-win equation to establish itself
