With roughly half a billion people working in India, the country boasts the second largest labour force on the planet.

Experts say that India is still far from having achieved its full economic potential. Poor infrastructure is holding the country back on its way to becoming the next economic superpower.

Competition for skilled jobs is high among qualified employees working in India. On the other hand, the huge supply of skilled employment candidates working in India increasingly attracts international companies seeking to outsource work.This trend has been encouraged by the Indian government, with an increasing emphasis on foreign trade and investment by relaxing its hold on the economy. As multinational companies tend to have an international workforce, the number of expats working in India is also on the rise.

The agricultural sector, while only generating a fifth of the national GDP, employs roughly half of all people working in India. This includes those working in India’s modern agricultural industries as well as traditional village farmers. Apart from tea production, farmers working in India mainly grow rice, wheat, sugarcane, fruit, and vegetables.

The industrial sector makes up a quarter of GDP. The cement industry, for example, is the second largest cement-producing country in the world. Other industries that employ considerable numbers of people working in India include textiles, transport equipment, mining, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, IT software, and machinery.

The service sector is responsible for over half of GDP, employing roughly one third of all people working in India. Several fields of work, notably information technology, IT-enabled services, telecommunications as well as financial, social, personal, cultural and recreational services have grown faster than the rest of the economy. The term “financial services” is used in a comprehensive way to include people working in India’s banks, real estate, and insurance.

With some exceptions, foreigners living and working in India are subject to Indian taxation laws. The tax system for has undergone some liberal reforms in order to boost trade and investment but is very difficult to follow and third party advice is essential for both individuals wanting to work in India and Corporations wishing to set up in India that require local registration that can take months to achieve.

Any Indian national wanting to work outside of India needs to consider the following:

  • Will IELTS be an advantage or is it mandatory?
  • Will my certified trade or professional skills be recognised where I wish to work?
  • Will I get a visa to work the country I am targeting?

All this can be established through internet research and it is essential that this basic research is undertaken before joining the site and registering your CV.

For corporations looking to outsource to India or to supply services to India nothing can be rushed and the Indian visa system is challenging and unpredictable and aimed at maintaining as many jobs as possible within India.
