NEW DELHI (Reuters) – New Delhi is the most attractive city in the world for companies looking to set up offshore back office operations thanks to its cheapness and a large pool of skilled labour, a new survey by a U.S.-based consultancy says.

The next six slots in the league table produced by outsourcing consultancy neoIT are also filled by Indian cities — Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai and Kolkata.

“The labour pool remains a huge advantage in India — you don’t have to spend lots of money training people up,” Sabyasachi Satyaprasad, a senior director at neoIT, told reporters in New Delhi.

  1. I don’t know how long this might stay….
    Russia / china and other countries are fast emerging.

  2. Agree with Vin. Other countries are catching up and will catchup because our infrastructure sucks, redtape sucks, and sheer harassment of visitors to the country sucks.

    Also, Bangalore has adopted unfriendly city attitude. The Buses refuse to display anything other than local language. A visitor to the city is totally lost. Not even english displays of destinations exist. And unlike the image of a laid back polite city – the experience of visitors uniformly is just the reverse.

  3. Benefits of outsourcing in India

    • Availability of cheap and efficient workforce
    • Computer savvy and English speaking workforce
    • Better infrastructure in terms of communications
    • Quality certified software firms
    • Relatively stable government
    • Investor friendly laws

  4. Agree with Stveven, but we also need to work on the problems related to infrastrcutire, etc.

    Generally, I agree with “Apun Ka Desh” also except that commoners in Bangalore are really polite. It is the auto-rickshaw-waalas that have really brought a bad name to the city’s people.

  5. Check this out:

    Although China and other countries like Czech Republic (yes, thats right), Russia, Poland (yes Poland) and others are emerging, none of them can offer the benefits that we can.

    There was a huge drive by an American company to train Chinese graduates on the nuances of American accent, but it did not prove successful at all. Indian’s are very quick to adapt compared to other countries mentioned above. The only country which is better when it comes to soft skills is the Phillipines, but then they don’t have the talent pool that is available and they are still on the fringes as far as large outsourcing is concerned.

    In fact, Indian companies are setting up shop over there. This is a outsourcing company from Ahmedabad which recently set up shop in Manila :
