Brain drain into Brain gain: Union minister Prakash Javadekar today said his government was committed to stop ‘brain drain‘ of research scholars and turn ‘brain drain’ into ‘brain gain‘.

“We see research scholars who go abroad because of better infrastructure and facilities. We are committed to turning brain drain into brain gain,” the minister said at a meet of the Indian Chambers of Commerce here.

A higher education finance agency has been made operational to provide loans without interest to good institutions to improve their laboratories and research facilities, he said at the programme ‘Way Forward For Education Sector In Eastern Region, Challenges and Recommendations.’

The Prime Minister scholarship scheme will provide stipends between Rs 75,000 – Rs 1,00,000 every month to research scholars,” Javadekar said.

He said under ‘Uchchatar Abhishkar Yojana‘ (UAY) started by the government, research students are working on customised requirements of the industry.

Under Rashtriya Uchcha Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA), the government is providing Rs two crore to rural colleges and Rs 20 crore to universities for upgrading their infrastructure, the minister said.

Another scheme of the HRD Ministry – ‘Tequip’, which is now in its third phase, aims to uplift technical education infrastructure with a special focus on the institutions of east and north-east, he informed.

    useless schemes..implementation monitoring and removal of mediators is more important..removal of flaterring for gain is highly needed..APPROVALS ARE MOSTLY GIVEN TO FLATTERERS RATHER THAN REAL POTENTIAL IN OUR COUNTRY BY EMPOWERED AND APPOINTED NON – POTENTIAL ADMINISTRATORS WHO MOSTLY ARE INVOLVED IN BUTTERING, ETC, OF THE MINISTRY, WHICH ALSO WANTS IT TO HAPPEN IN THIS WAY. INDIA NEEDS REFORM
