Paytm looks to double headcount in FY16

With most players in the sector looking to aggressively ramp up their teams, Indian mobile commerce platform Paytm plans to double its employee base in FY16 from around 3,000 currently. The company has added around 1,500 persons to its total headcount in FY15.

"A large part of the hiring will be in operations and sales. We will also hire for technology roles," Amit Sinha, vice president-business and people at Paytm told Business Standard. "We have given over 100 offers to students at top management and engineering colleges. We are still visiting campuses and that number will go up further."
