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 per cent 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 operations and many new start-ups are 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 3,000 new companies. Over the next five years, that number is expected to grow to 11,500.

Thus, with the new companies entering the Indian market and existing companies expanding their operations, demand for various office administration and facility management staff like stenographer, secretary, Daftry, etc. is expected to increase in India.
