Foreign companies from different sectors like banking, and finance have come to India to outsource their work creating jobs in accounting, mortgage collections, marketing etc.
  2. Other sectors where job opportunities have multiplied are Biotechnology; health care especially with chains of private hospitals being set up; medical research centres; food retailing with shopping malls cropping up at every nook and corner of the cities and towns.
  3. In the field of education, there is a demand for trained professionals as international schools and colleges are poised to enter India on a wider scale.
