Every day hundreds of thousands of passangers move though the Indian airports and thousands of aircrafts land, are serviced and take off. In addition, there are cargo planes and private planes and helicopters and of course, Indian Airforce has its own airports and maintenance facilities for its planes.
Each time an aircraft lands, it goes through a routine check demanding all the skills you will learn at Agragami. If it passes, it will fly again. If not, it will go to MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul) facilities) for further maintenance. In addition, a scheduled maintenance is performed at regular intervals whereby many components are replaced even if they are still operating, but they are not so perfect anymore.
Look how many airports India has now and these are the busiest ones!!. There many more - look here for any airport anywhere in India.
The following links show all India MROs (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul) facilities and all Indian airlines and cargo carriers.
So you can see that there is plenty of work at home, not even speaking of foreign opportunities.

Indian National Satellite System (INSAT) is one of several space programmes launched by the ISRO.
This photograph shows the "Umbilical Tower" carrying the ISRO's Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle in preparation for launch. PSLV-C6 launched CARTOSAT-1 and HAMSAT satellites on May 5, 2005.
PSLV-C6 was the ninth flight of India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). In its past eight flights, this 295 tonne, 44 metre tall, workhorse launch vehicle of ISRO has launched six Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites as well as a meteorological satellite KALPANA-1. Besides, it has launched four satellites as auxiliary payloads for customers from abroad. The previous seven flights of PSLV have been consecutively successful in orbiting the satellites carried on board.
PSLV-C6 was the first flight launched from the Second Launch Pad (SLP) at Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, Sriharikota, which is India’s spaceport. Located on the east coast of India, SDSC SHAR is about 80 km to the north of Chennai. It provides the necessary infrastructure for launching satellites.
