Education, Training & Research Sector in India

According to IBEF, India is an important educational centre in the global education industry. India has more than 1.4 million schools and more than 35,000 higher education institutes. India has one of the largest higher education systems in the world and there is still a lot of potential for further development in the education system. India's online education market size is expected to touch US$ 40 billion by 2017. The RNCOS report titled, Booming Distance Education Market Outlook 2018 expects the distance education market in India to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of around 34 per cent during 2013-14 to 2017-18.

The Government of India is a big employer for qualified Physicists and other scientific researchers. ISRO conducts various tests for the post graduates for different vacancies occurring in different projects there. The candidates interested in pursuing a job in various governmental organizations should update themselves with various exam notifications conducted by UPSC, SSC etc. which provides the pathway to various governmental firms. Also, many private firms are now hiring Experimental Physicists in their companies and the future for Physicist, Light seems very bright and prosperous according to these facts. The growth of R&D sector in India is surely going to help these professionals flourish in future.
