Attrition of scientists from the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has reduced in the last two years. Number of scientists, mainly at junior level, who have resigned from DRDO during 2006-2009 is as under:-

Year - Total No. of Resignations 2006 - 322 2007 - 273 2008 - 150 2009(Till date) - 61 Scientists, who had resigned, have indicated personal/domestic ground as the reasons for leaving DRDO. However, it is assumed that increased opportunities that was available in private sector industries is the main reason of such exodus.

Sixth Central Pay Commission has recommended a number of incentives for scientists, which have been accepted and implemented by the Government. DRDO has also made efforts to enhance their career by providing study leave for acquiring higher qualifications viz., PhD, MTech, etc, sponsoring scientists for attending conferences/seminars/symposia/ short and long term training courses in frontier areas of research within the country and abroad, mentoring of young scientists, creating better working environment and social life in living campuses, etc.
