Honda plans to hire 1,000 people in India

Japanese auto major Honda Motor Company plans to hire around 1,000 people in India as it looks to start a second production shift at its plant here by the end of this financial year. The company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL) is targeting an almost 50 per cent jump in sales to 2 lakh units in 2014-15. “When we will start the second shift at the Tapukara facility, we will require more manpower. We think we will add 800-1,000 people in our overall headcount in India by the end of this fiscal,” HCIL Senior Vice President (Marketing and Sales) Jnaneswar Sen told PTI here. HCIL currently has a total strength of around 9,000 employees through direct and indirect employment at its two facilities in Greater Noida and Tapukara, he added.
