Being rather small, the Indian diaspora in Germany rarely receives much attention in the German media. If it does, however, reports are mostly positive, usually characterizing Indian migrants as part of a highly educated, aspiring, and well-integrated 'migrant elite'. This media image remains heavily influenced by the stereotype of the 'Computer-Indian', brought about by the introduction of a Green Card scheme for IT experts in 2000. Most reports, however, reveal a rather instrumental perspective on Indian migrants; they focus more on the benefits they bring to the German economy than on the migrants themselves.
