Cisco To Create 3,000 Jobs In India

Networking giant Cisco Systems plans to create more than 3,000 new jobs at its Indian base in Bangalore, according to an article on Wednesday in India's Economic Times.

"We are quite happy about our Indian operations. As Bangalore is the second global head office for Cisco after California, we want to increase our headcount here. We plan to hire 3,000 more in the next two years," said Wim Elfrink, Cisco's Chief Globalisation Officer and Executive Vice-President.

California-based Cisco already employs around 7,000 workers at its second head office in Bangalore. Cisco's upgraded premises are also likely to cater for up to ten start-up organisations.

The $40 billion company has also signed an agreement with Lavasa Corporation to provide solutions for internet connectivity and governance solutions in the hill city of Lavasa, near Pune.
