During his visit, Pichai had said Google will ramp up our engineering investments at Bengaluru and Hyderabad facilities and even invest nearly Rs 1,000 crore in building a new campus in Hyderabad’s Gachibowli area, biggest campus outside the US.

Google wants to double the number of its head count in India to 13,000 by 2019.

Pichai wants to make the internet more relevant for Indians and set up free Wi-Fi across 100 train stations across the country.
