This is something Indian corporates need to start doing. Harvard Univ is already doing it - for improving the induction of ethnic and racial minorities in its halls.
Even their are diversity career fairs aimed at the minorities at the univ's various schools. In India Videocon and TATA have also started something in help improve the induction of Dalit and Tribal engineers and business school grads on their rolls.
The business newspapers (like Financial Expres, Eco. Times, Bus. Standard), , recruitment agencies (like ABC consultants, Oman cons. etc) and corporates can join hands to organize such fairs.
They should be also organized in NE region and Jammu - Kashmir.
