Computer maker Dell plans to double the number of workers it has in India over the next three years.

Chairman Michael Dell, visiting the technology hub of Bangalore, says the India-based work force will rise to 20-thousand.

As it now stands, Texas-based Dell has four call centers in India, a product testing center for corporate customers and a global software development center.

Western companies have been cutting costs by shifting software development, engineering design and office functions to countries like India, where English-speaking workers are plentiful and wages are relatively low.

Dell currently operates nine plants around the world, six of them outside the US.
