"We plan to hire 2000 people in the next four-five months or by the end of this fiscal. Currently, we are 16,000 people in India," Infosys BPO CEO Amitabh Chaudhry said while talking to reporters on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum.
This comes after the company inked a deal with the Andhra Pradesh government to set up 22 BPO centres in rural districts of the state.
Infosys BPO, which is the back-office unit of IT firm Infosys Technologies, gets most of its business from North America and Europe.
And in a bid to win more clients, the firm is reportedly trying to align with Finacle, the banking solution business of its parent apart from planning to establish a new delivery centre in US by this financial year.
