"At present we have over 11,000 employees in India we plan to take this beyond 15,000 over the next three years. Our India business has given the strongest performance last year despite the downturn and we remain optimistic about this market and will continue to invest in it," Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu CEO Jim Quigley told reporters.
