Very poor CS PhD production rate by Indian Universities (2004: 36 in India, 3300 in China!)

Not enough Indian researchers or product technologists from US returning to India, unlike in the case of China, Taiwan, Korea, …
Difficulty of recruiting good faculty with deep research focus
Many 2nd tier universities have large # of non-PhDs as faculty
