Of these 1,000 new hires, 260 will be from IITs and the rest will be from top engineering colleges, including BITS Pilani, NIITS, and IIITs and another 250 will be from pre-placement offers, the company said.

"This is part of our continued growth and expansion plans in India. For us, R&D has been on the front. We opened our first R&D centre in India in 1996 in Bengaluru, and a factory in the same year. This shows our commitment to the Indian market and India-related product and talent," Sammer Wadhawan, Head, Human Resources, Samsung India, told IANS.
