Way back in February, we reported that Yahoo India planned to add around 500 new employees even as the rest of the company fell apart.  Unsurprisingly, the company changed its mind, but the interesting thing is that the rate of hiring has been accelerated.

The previous employment plan would have raised the branch’s overall headcount to 2,000 by the end of this year.  The Press Trust of India reveals that, according to the newer schedule, "the total strength could be between 2,500-2,700 employees" at that same point.

"In the first six months of this year itself, Yahoo! has added more than 1,000 employees for its India operations and further 500 people could be added to its headcount through the year," a PTI article states.

Yahoo India seems destined to shoulder a great deal of responsibility.  Its hiring binge, even as major layoffs are rumored to be lined up elsewhere, is one sign.  The appearance of Glue Pages in India is another; it may represent Yahoo’s next approach to presenting search results.

We’ll see what happens, anyway.  Given the rate at which American employees are quitting, some sort of shift may take place whether Yahoo likes it or not.
