The Indian government’s commitment to expanding the manufacturing sector, improving infrastructure, bureaucracy, and tackling corruption, as well as to the Make in India and Smart Cities initiatives, are also attracting companies seeking global growth.

By producing an influx of expatriates, international assignees and corporate relocations, this improving business, economic and political environment is fuelling the expansion of India’s vibrant global mobility sector. Particularly in such a complex and fast-moving landscape, HR and global mobility managers need access to the latest information if they are to ensure that their companies comply with all the regulations governing the management of international relocations and assignments in India.

This section provides practical advice and information for HR and global managers with international assignees, whether they are on long-term, short-term or project assignments, and for those setting up a business or a company office in India. With input from experts across the global mobility and relocation industry, it covers the latest trends in inbound, outbound and domestic relocation – from hotspot relocation destinations like Bangalore, Pune, Gurgaon, and India’s eight Special Economic Zones, to industry sectors and assignee profiles – plus talent management, immigration, residential and commercial property, and employee support topics, including education and international schools.

The section also features the latest news, articles, tools and resources to support overseas assignments, inbound relocation moves, and domestic relocations.
