In Australia, even a candidate with a vocational certificate is highly competent to carry out many business and organizational task, which Indian degree holder might fail to do. Significant promises are made to a student who spends millions of rupees for education, found to be cheated hence the great Indian assets are being wasted. The need and dream of quality life for a student is compromised.
