The government and industry will absorb at least 10,000 PhDs every year and prevent brain drain in an effort to boost research and development (R&D) investments, minister of state for planning Ashwani Kumar said on Monday.

“The government and industry will ensure that every year 10,000 PhDs are absorbed in the private sector,” he said. Kumar said the government believed that if India’s quest for global leadership has to be achieved, there was a need to give clear focus to the areas of science, technology and innovation.
