Western countries are applauded for their amazing lifestyles, better job opportunities and brilliant future prospects. These along with other multiple benefits are perfect to lure people from all over the world to immigrate to these countries. Every year, hundreds of Indian citizens immigrate to countries like US, Australia, Canada and UK in search of a better lifestyle and many come back home. It’s a question we should ask that why would an Immigrant Return to India?
Indians are decked with immense amount of talent on behalf of which they easily get quality education and employment opportunities where ever they go. Indians have the capacity to face all kinds of challenges as long as they are given ample rewards for their efforts. But with the current phase of recession and economic catastrophe, India has emerged as a consistent performer and a country that has managed to maintain a resistant economy when compared to other countries. With feeble economies in America and Europe, Indians settled abroad, are now interested in coming back, sighting finer job opportunities at hand.
Return to India
But the entire process of coming back to the home country is attired with various pros and cons! If we look at the dazzling side of this aspect, we will find out that the Indian economic conditions are more subtle and sophisticated and offer plenty of job opportunities as compared to the crisis in the west! With the increase in financial opportunities, India is gradually drawing more amount of potential people every year. That would automatically result in an enhancement in the overall work quality and an increase in the population of efficient employees in India.
An immigrant returning to India may find a huge deviation as far as the working environment is concerned. They can take a gap and understand the working conditions of India or start working straightaway after returning to their home country – choice is theirs!
The gap would give them a chance to adapt to the local conditions and know the availability of various jobs with sheer glare. But the disadvantage of taking a break means that you will miss on many job opportunities while being idle at the same time. In addition, diverse immigration rules demand NRIs to work rather than being idle.
On the other hand, those who will straight away join a job may find it difficult to adapt to an entirely new ambiance in India. But they will get used to it gradually.
In the end, a settled NRI needs to factor in whether he can adapt to deficient quality of life where utilities like power, water, and infrastructure are not always available. At the same time, he should be able to get used to the habit of pollution and corruption and adapt to these situations also. In general, people who have lived abroad for a long time find it difficult to adapt to these conditions. And sooner or later, they get frustrated. Home calling, as it often called, is not always the most pleasure of the experience.
Therefore one must always hire the services of a proficient immigration and visa consultant to know even the minutest details of the above mentioned working conditions and whether a shift back to India may even be advisable.
