Globally, India is amongst the top three countries following this trend with Brazil highest at 92 percent, followed by China at 87 percent, the study said.
"Indian parents continue to be involved in their child's careers even after their education, 84 percent Indian parents stated that they were aware of what their child does on a day to day basis at the workplace. This is higher than the global average (77 percent)," it added.
About 37 percent of professionals surveyed endorsed this by describing their parents as 'Lighthouse Parents' who advise and encourage, without being over involved.
"Contrary to the popular belief that Indian parents are over involved, this study shows that a significant number of Indian parents also follow the 'Lighthouse Parenting' style and that professionals acknowledge this," said Deepa Sapatnekar, Head of Communications, LinkedIn India and Hong Kong.
