Education Industry in India

According to a report by IBEF, India is an important educational centre in the global education industry. This is because the country has more than 1.4 million schools and more than 35,000 higher education institutes. Also, the vocational education and training is fast emerging as an important area of focus in India. According to data released by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), the total amount of foreign direct investments (FDI) inflow into the education sector in India stood at US$ 1,071.5 million from April 2000 to January 2015.

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.

Considering all these factors, it is safe to say that there is demand for a Mathematician in the present and it will also be there in the future.
