IBM, the world’s largest computer product and service provider, has announced that it has set up a new facility in Calcutta and will be hiring up to 3,000 more IT professionals in the city to meet demand for outsourcing.

The firm currently employs 4,000 people in Calcutta, which is its second largest IT centre after Bangalore. The new facility will be used for business consulting including software application development and maintenance, the company said.

IBM has been aggressively expanding its Indian work force, increasing its headcount in the country to 43,000 from 38,500 over a six-month period.

IT outsourcing is predicted to grow by more than 25% in the year ending March 2007, according to research compiled by India’s National Association of Software and Service companies.
