Capgemini intends to double its staff in India to 40,000 by 2010, according to Capgemini group's executive board member Luc-Francois Salvador. He added that the IT consulting firm will increase its proportion of outsourcing by 38 percent.

"There will be a strong increase in outsourcing in 2009, depending on the opportunities available," Salvador said. "We will further increase our size in India. India is still a strong economy with a lot of growth opportunities."

The Capgemini executive denied speculation about the consultancy possibly acquiring Indian outsourcer Satyam Computer Services Ltd., saying that the firm was not on Capgemini’s radar for acquisition. “If the second half looks like it is stronger, then we might take a position on it,” he added.

Capgemini employs 88,000 staff around the world. The company has recently frozen hiring in some parts of Europe and will be expanding its staff in India as it battles the economic crisis.
