Hi Abhinav,

In this case I would recommend you to do P.hD from BITS-Pilani.
Giving up a coveted job is highy not recommended.

For aspirants like you BITS-Pilani has Off-campus Ph.D. under 'Ph.D. Aspirants'

Details are here:

The Institute also offers an unique opportunity for experienced personnel and professionals of high standing and proven competence engaged in various industries, R&D organisations, public and private sector corporations, etc. to work towards Ph.D. degree of the Institute in the settings of their respec-tive work environments and makes it possible for practicing professionals to be offered the same chal-lenge and standard which traditionally have been given to teachers in universities.

(ii) Ph.D. Programme Components

These are (i) Course work, if necessary; (ii) Qualifying Examination; (iii) Foreign Language, when required; (iv)Teaching Practice/Practice Lecture Series; (v) Seminar/Independent Study; (vi) Ph.D. Thesis.

The various categories of Ph.D. candidates are given below:
Ph.D. Aspirant: A person who makes a formal application with required details under the various enabling clauses, for taking the Qualifying Exami-nation directly, without having been formally admitted as a Ph.D. student.
Ph.D. Provisional: A person who has been provisionally admitted to the Ph.D. programme and is yet to take the Qualifying Examination.

(iii) Admission to Ph.D. Programmes

a) Who can enter as a 'Ph.D. Aspirant' ?
- A candidate with a formal higher degree which is the minimum qualification for the Ph.D. pro-gramme; namely M.E./M.E. (Coll.)/ M.Phil./ M.Phil.(Applied)/ M.Pharm./M.S. of BITS or an equivalent degree of another university of standing.
- A person of a long and high professional stand-ing and proven competence not possessing a higher degree but whose experience can meas-ure upto a higher degree.
- A student coming after clearing all courses of a higher degree of the Institute or its equivalent without completing the degree.
A 'Ph.D. Aspirant' can seek permission to appear in Ph.D. Qualifying Examination before the formalities of admission to Ph.D. programme are completed.
All 'Ph.D. Aspirants' after passing the Qualifying Examination shall seek formal admission to the Ph.D. programme at the earliest opportunity available to them and register in the Ph.D. Courses.

Let know you want to know more on this.
