Microsoft India Private Limited is a subsidiary of American software company Microsoft Corporation, headquartered in Hyderabad, India. The company first entered the Indian market in 1990 and has since worked closely with the Indian government, the IT industry, academia, and the local developer community to usher in some of the early successes in the IT market. Microsoft currently has offices in the 9 cities of Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, the NCR (New Delhi and Gurgaon) and Pune.
Increasingly, the company has become a key IT partner of the Indian government and industry, supporting and fueling the growth of the local IT industry through its partner enablement programs. Microsoft in India employs about 6,500 people and has six business units representing the complete Microsoft product portfolio. The company has two major campuses in the country one Hyderabad and another in Bengaluru with capabilities of 5000 and 2000 employees respectively.
Microsoft MD Rajiv Kumar confirmed the news during a virtual meeting with Uttar Pradesh’s MSME & Export Promotion Minister Sidharth Nath Singh. The state will roll out the “red carpet” facility to Microsoft to make it easier for the company to do business, Singh said.
“The company has said that they want to move their North India campus to Greater Noida. The next step will be a site inspection by the team both in Greater Noida and along the Yamuna Expressway followed by their proposal which the state government will examine,” Singh told The Economic Times.
Other companies like Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Wipro, and Haier are also in various levels of discussions with the state government of bringing in investment in the Noida/Greater Noida regions.
