Human resource development minister Kapil Sibal on Thursday launched a special webpage for Non-resident Indians (NRIs) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) ahead of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas starting on Friday.

The webpage is linked to the HRD ministry website and offers updated details on vacancies in teaching posts at all central higher educational institutions including the Indian Institutes of Technology and the Indian Institutes of Management.

“Indian origin academicians abroad will have access to details of job opportunities here, allowing them to directly correspond with institutions,” Sibal said. The webpage also has links detailing all scholarships available for foreign students who wish to study in India.

Sibal also unveiled a special edition of the HRD ministry’s newsletter for delegates to the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas.
