Microsoft plans to double the number of staff at its two main Indian software development and service centres.

At its main base in Hyderabad, the company plans to double the headcount to 2,000 by March next year; the centre only opened last November.

And in Bangalore, Microsoft plans to double the number of staff to 1,000.

It is not clear whether the expansion will affect job creation in the US or Europe, although the extra jobs aren’t expected to result in any immediate redundancies in Microsoft’s other global operations.

SAP, Alcatel, and IBM are among those companies to announce rapid expansion in staff numbers in the country, taking advantage of lower costs and broad IT skill-sets.
