There is a dire need to expand the scope for higher science education and research in the country to reach its goal of a knowledge power in the globe. Government agencies are announcing a massive increase in the number of such institutions on a daily basis. It is not, however, clear as to how we will get the adequate qualified human resource to man and run these new institutions bearing brand names of repute or fill in the existing vacancies. This article attempts to review the current situation and strategies planned. The bottom line is to provide an attractive career in terms of monetary benefits as well as working environment. In the meanwhile, should we not hasten carefully, if not slowly?
