There is some good news for individuals looking for jobs in India. Amazon India has as many as 1,300 vacancies in the country, which is the highest in Asia-Pacific as mentioned on its website. The openings in India are also three times as much as those available in China. Only Germany has as many openings as India, outside of Amazon’s home turf, USA.
Most of the hiring is expected to be in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Chennai.
It is not yet clear whether the openings are only for Amazon or also for its Prime video, its voice assistant Alexa and the firm’s other horizons as well.
The government’s move to tighten norms has hit Amazon and Flipkart the hardest as the new regulations bar online marketplaces with foreign investment to sell products of companies where they hold stakes as well as ban exclusive marketing arrangements.
Industry experts believe that these fresh openings could work in Amazon‘s favor in the ongoing FDI policy discussion with the Centre. The newly-announced FDI policies could significantly alter the way Amazon conducts its business in India.
