Yahoo expects to double the India headcount in 2008

In the first six months of this year itself, Yahoo! has added more than 1,000 employees for its India operations and further 500 people could be added to its headcount through the year, Yahoo! India spokesperson told PTI. Going by this average, the total strength could be between 2,500-2,700 employees by the end of 2008.

Earlier this year, Yahoo! had announced that it would globally cut down about 1,000 jobs, while in recent weeks, US media reports have said that a number of top level executives of Yahoo! are leaving and the pace has further increased following the failed takeover attempt by software giant Microsoft.

Many of the executives, including senior vice-president of Yahoo!'s search group Vish Makhijani, are reported to have left the firm.
