Basically, these can be grouped as i) work-related, ii) personal or family related, and iii) miscellaneous reasons. They can play a role either alone or in combination.

Work-related Reasons:

1. Uncaring boss or bullying by boss or seniors leading to stress and negative thoughts.

2. Feeling of micromanagement and continuous supervision

3. Lack of or no promotions or financial increments.
