Nokia job cuts not to affect India operations
Though, finnish mobile handset maker Nokia on Thursday said it will cut 10,000 jobs globally by the end of 2013 but its Indian operations are unlikely to see any "significant impact".
Nokia also announced closure of its facilities in Ulm in Germany and Burnaby in Canada as part of its planned measures to rescale the company by making additional reductions in devices and services.
"Today's planned changes will impact Nokia employees throughout our operations globally. While we anticipate impact at other sites, we don't see significant impact on India operations. Having said that, we have no specifics to provide at this stage," a Nokia India spokesperson said.
As of March 31, 2012, Nokia employed 1,22,148 people. Of these, 68,595 were employed by Nokia Siemens Networks, a joint venture between Nokia and Siemens.
