Intel to swing the axe in Indian offices next

IIDC has its head on the block

INTEL'S INDIAN operations are about to get downsized or possibly axed.

The place that did not bring you Whitefield is looking less likely to bring you the next chip also, we hear.

In any case, it looks like Intel is going to shut down the Bangalore office and shuffle things around. We are not sure if this means shuffled off to elsewhere in India, to other offices in the region, or out of the country entirely.

The top management has already seen the storm coming and left for greener pastures. Not a hint about AMD there.

The raw numbers are 500 or so to be let go officially, about twice that going on their own, and all this is from a country-wide work force of about 2500-3000.

It sounds like a mess, but until Intel announces things officially, we won't know for sure. Good luck to all the workers there. µ
