Microsoft has announced that it will establish a new engineering center in India to further fulfill its commitment to invest in Indian engineering talents.As a reciprocal measure, it also helps Microsoft to develop and develop its local business. It is reported that the center is located in NCR, a suburb of New Delhi, which is the third development center set up by Microsoft in India.
In 1998, Microsoft established one of the largest R & D centers (IDC) outside Redmond's headquarters in Hyderabad, promoting the company's global shared development strategy and building products and services.

The new site aims to become a world-class R & D center, which is an important step to provide the next billion users with an innovative vision. At the same time, it creates opportunities for engineers to carry out meaningful work and spreads its influence all over the world.
In other words, IDC NCR will become the location of Microsoft's engineering teams across various technology divisions, including Microsoft's AI research team, enterprise cloud team, enterprise equipment team, and core engineering services and operations.
Interestingly, IDC NCR will also place the relevant team of Microsoft's live streaming Game Platform mixer, becoming the first center of the game team hosted outside its headquarters.
The new facility will attract thousands of engineers and plans to expand to mature R & D centers (similar to IDC's facilities in Bangalore and Hyderabad).
With the support of three facilities, the R & D center in India will include teams from all engineering departments of Microsoft.
