Opens business operations in Delhi, Mumbai
MUMBAI – 9 February 2006 – Google Inc. today marked its continued investment in India with the opening of its business operations in Delhi and Mumbai. These operations complement existing centres in Bangalore and Hyderabad, and are designed to enable Google to develop business opportunities, provide locally relevant products and services, and deliver advertising services to its users, advertisers and partners throughout India.
“The market in India is changing rapidly. More people are coming online as the infrastructure for growth quickly expands,” said Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, vice president, Asia Pacific and Latin America operations, Google Inc. “The Google India team will forge relationships with businesses, partners and agencies throughout the region and enable them to take advantage of this growth in e-commerce.”
Google – through its advertising programme Google AdWords – enables advertisers and businesses of all sizes and industries to reach this fast growing audience as they search the web. Google AdWords matches text-based ads to users’ search queries, providing them with information relevant to what they are looking for. This results in a highly-targeted service that returns significant results to the advertiser.

Kashyap has extensive experience in these markets and was formerly General Manager & Business Head of E-Commerce at Indiatimes.com. “We see an opportunity in India for Google to partner with businesses – through Google AdWords – to make an impact on their growth,” said Kashyap.
As country manager of Google India’s sales and operations, Kashyap and his team will focus on continuing to grow Google’s client base and business relationships.
