Overview of Indian Offices Administrative and Facility Management Sector
With the favourable macroeconomic condition and various reforms driven by the government of Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, India?s growth rate is expected to rise to 7.5 percent this year and next, making it one of the fastest growing economies in the world, according to the IMF's latest economic health check.
As the Indian economy is growing many foreign companies are looking to set up their base in India, existing companies are expanding their operation and many new start up entering Indian markets.
A recent report by the industry body National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM) found that India is now the fourth largest start up hub in the world, with more than 3000 new companies. Over the next five years, that number is expected to grow to 11,500.
All basic jobs in government sections require trained hands in stenography. Even in public sector undertakings, there are many vacancies, but very few eligible candidates. According to placement agency expert Deepa Ghonge, there are many openings for trained stenographers, as it is considered as a must qualification for executive secretary in corporate sector and advised that college going students must acquire this skill as was the practice till last decade.
Thus, with new companies entering the Indian market and existing companies expanding their operation demand for various office administration and facility management staff like Stenographer, Secretary, etc. is expected to increase in India.
