The Times Of India reports that Google has had trouble finding enough quality talent to hire for its Indian offices.

India may have an exploding IT industry, but Google has been notorious in setting its standards super-high for job candidates, and it isn’t finding enough bodies to put on the giant colored balls.

Google, which is considered to have a very low attrition rate even in the high-job-hopping Indian IT space, has found it more challenging to hire certain talent in India as compared to other parts of the world, the company’s founder-director Kavitark Ram Shriram admitted recently.

The Indian origin founding board member of Google and a well-known venture capitalist said at an Investing in India’ conference in San Francisco, “I know first hand that we have had a bit more of a challenge trying to hire engineers for Google in Bangalore compared to the other parts of the world.”

I’m hoping its more of a situation of growing pains for Google than a problem with the Indian workforce.

Is the problem on Google’s side, or does India have quantity, but not enough quality?
