Is Google on a hiring spree in India?

Google has big plans for India in next three to five years. It plans to hire more people from India for its brand advertising business and considers India as an impactful market.

"Our focus in India is growth. India is going to be one of the 10 most impactful markets for Google in three to five years. There will be minimal impact on India in terms of job cuts announced globally," said Google India MD Shailesh Rao.

Google currently has four offices in India, located in Bangalore, Gurgaon, Hyderabad and Mumbai. After U.S., Google has the highest headcount in India. Even after having such a strong presence at the moment, India does not drive global revenue, Rao added.
