Auto sector in India had most job opportunities in October, says study

India’s auto sector – which is riding the wave of increased demand and robust economic growth – generated the most number of job opportunities in the country in October, a study said.

"An in-depth analysis shows that the index for the auto sector stands at 917 in October 2010, which is the highest index value for the sector since October 2008," the study says.

"A look at the index for the past two years shows that there is usually a seasonal dip in hiring during the festive season. However, this year the sentiment is encouraging as sectors like Auto, Oil and Gas, ITES [information technology enabled service] and Manufacturing continue to hire aggressively," says Info Edge India CEO and managing director Hitesh Oberoi.
