Is it worth moving to India?
India is a special country, exotic and original. People in many parts of the world dream of living in India. However, from reflection to real moving usually does not reach. The reason for this is extremely strict immigration policy of the authorities.
Is it worth moving here from Russia? Immigration to India is just as remarkable as the state itself. For the sake of religious service, people traveling to India professing Hinduism and Sikhism, supporters of Vedic practices. Culturologists and sociologists learn the features of a multifaceted culture from within. India is no end to researchers.
A special layer of emigrants are young Russians who married an Indian. How many situations when a Russian citizen marries a Russian citizen does not compare with the number of reverse cases. According to the CIA World Factbook, there is a demographic bias in India: there are more men than women. To marry a local resident, the applicant must be able to support the family and be with her at the same social level (the caste system is still flourishing).

The country ranks second in the world in terms of population. Most of the citizens are young people, few of whom find work with difficulty. In 2018 the working age reached 141.3 million Indians. The growth of the economy of the last years at the level of 7.6% of GDP ensured the creation of 1.5 million jobs per year (this is 1% of the existing need). 20% of the flow of young people who entered the market in 2018 (28 million people), graduated from higher education institutions and apply for high-paying positions. India is the leader of shadow employment. Here its level reaches 83.6%. The catastrophic shortage of jobs provokes fierce competition: up to 500 citizens with university education, work experience and the perfect knowledge of English and Hindi claim for one place in the corporation (both are the working languages of the country under the Constitution).
Prospects of employment for emigrants.
Count on employment is a few Russians. There is simply no unskilled work for foreigners. The state does not give them the opportunity to occupy places on which Indians can work. Until 2010, the issue was solved as follows: the number of jobs for foreigners could not exceed 1% of the staff number of employees. As of 2018, only a highly qualified specialist can be employed, provided that his annual salary is at least $ 25,000 per year.
