Prabhakar also said that students have been imposed with visa restrictions in countries like the US and UK in the last few years. Therefore, Canada has emerged as the country which is the most sought after destination of Indian students for pursuing higher education overseas. The entire study is based on the site visits received by Sulekha across all the cities of India in the last one year. All data has been derived on the basis of the information received by the app in a year’s time.
