Raghuvanshi said, “Indications are that the economic slowdown and hiring have bottomed out. We are now in the recovery stage as far as hiring is concerned.”
A city-wise analysis shows that five out of top eight cities in the country have seen an upward trend in hiring, though Mumbai and Pune witnessed decline.
For the period under consideration, hiring activity in Delhi-NCR and Kolkata rose 2 per cent and 1.43 per cent, respectively. For Chennai it was 7.05 per cent, Bangalore 3.33 per cent and Hyderabad 6.65 per cent.

Human rights politics hit a different pitch on Thursday when hundreds of rag pickers staged a protest demanding protection for their livelihood amidst privatisation that is gobbling away their jobs in the city.

Huwaei plans to add 2000 more employees to the already strong payroll of more than 4000. These jobs are slated to come up in India, though no word yet on if any will be in the NCR area. To date, Huwaei has locations in Bangalore and Gurgaon.
Sector 58-115 (South Gurgaon) are set to see housing capable of holding 70,000 families come up in the next few years. The starting prices of the properties is roughly half of the cost of comparable housing in Gurgaon today. With the far South Gurgaon location, companies rumored to be expanding (or relocating) to Manesar are certainly doing back-flips at the news.
A recent conversation with the Head HR for an MNC planning the shift to Gurgaon led us to believe they are expecting attrition rates to double with the added commute time. Surely the new housing availability on the south side of Gurgaon’s infamous traffic jam will aid in attrition.
What do you think? Would you be willing to live in Sector 100 and something – and then drive to Manesar for work – or at that point should you just move to Jaipur & tackle the reverse commute.
As always – let us know your thoughts!

Now, the Metro is slated to begin operations on one sector in the next 12 months – but the route misses the majority of the office parks in Gurgaon. As a daily commuter between Delhi and Gurgaon – I for one think it is ridiculous that seemingly lakhs of people are further congesting the roads & polluting the airways while DMRC boasts of a successful Metro System.
It is time for Delhi to get serious about reliable & clean public transport between Gurgaon & Delhi.
“We have been following the crisis in Dubai closely, but have so far seen no cause for any big alarm over huge numbers of Indians employed there returning overnight. Overall, in the last one year there has been a drop of around 25% in the number of Indians going to the Gulf countries for employment. However, while some of the countries have seen lower numbers, others such as Saudi Arabia are actually providing more employment opportunities for Indian workers. In fact, even in the United Arab Emirates, while jobs in Dubai have shrunk, more jobs have been created in the other Emirates than before,” Mr K. Mohandas, secretary, MOIA, told ET.
