Bill Gates' Microsoft has more plans to move software development work to India to help the firm save money and increase production, according to a presentation made at an internal office meeting.


WASHINGTON: Moving some work to India could "leverage the Indian economy's lower cost structure", said Brian Valentine, senior vice president of the Windows operating system group.

The presentation has since been posted on the website of the workers union -- Washington Alliance of Technology Workers.

Microsoft has 150 workers in a development centre in India and plans to increase them to 500 by 2005, Drake said. It also has sales offices in the country.
