Out of which a considerable number of Engineers which includes the cream of each batch, tend to migrate. Ultimately in the case of permanent migration, the people who learnt using the government funds will not serve for the benefit of the country. In addition the adverse effect of both temporary and permanent migration are the loss of the employed with high competence and experience.
