At 17.5 million, Indian diaspora remains largest in world
NEW DELHI: At 17.5 million, India’s diaspora continues to be the largest in the world – constituting 6.4% of the total world migrant population of 272 million in mid-2019.
While India’s diaspora in absolute numbers has increased 10% from 15.9 million in 2015, as a share of total world migrant population, it’s remained static, according to the UN’s International Migrant Stock released on Wednesday. And it trails the 12% rise in total migrant population, which was 243 million in 2015.
UAE, US and Saudi Arabia – with 3.4 million, 2.6 million and 2.4 million respectively – were the top three destinations for Indians, according to TOI’s analysis of the data. While the Gulf countries continue to have a high concentration of Indians, they’ve lost some of their drawing power, going by foreign ministry figures.
Another report – also released on Wednesday – by OECD, shows Indians moving up one position to No. 3 in 2017 with an inflow of 3.04 lakh – behind China and Romania.
The number of Indians who got US citizenship in 2017 rose 10% to more than 50,000 over the previous year.

It''s a shame for an average Japanese to go overseas and find work. Indians glorify themselves being servants in a foreign nation.

The quality of Indian migrants to the US starkly differs from the quality of Indian migrants to the AGCC countries. In general the Arabs have low impression about Indians. The Arab arrogance is evident from the Immigration Counters in these countries.

Numbers don`t matter. The Indian diaspora has no lobbying power as more than half were doing menial jobs. But Jewish diaspora though very small has powerful lobbying capacity.
As a percentage of world population, for 1.3 billion people the % is small. Countries like Syria, Iraqie, Poland, UK , Japan, korea, and even Sri Lanka have probably higher percentages of their populatipn as migrants
Thanks to Modi ji.

Young professionals in the age group of 30-45, often with two children, are the typical Indian migrants to Western countries. Some of them may have studied there, then obtained residency rights in that Western country. Motives in switching countries are a) Education of their children b) No caste quota abroad for medical c) Less air and noise pollution. Most do not look at monetary factor as important, because salaries in India are also good these days.
