Global management consultancy firm Deloitte on Tuesday said it would strengthen Indian operations by doubling its headcount to 12,000.
It also said that it was open for acquisitions in order to garner 10 per cent of global revenues from the country by 2010.
"We are working towards generating 10 per cent of global revenues from the country and would increase our headcount from current 6,500 to about 12,000 by 2010," Deloitte CEO William G Parett said on the sidelines of a CII-organised session on 'Sustainable Competitive Growth' here.
Competitiveness would help position local companies for global success through rigorous management practices that the firm aims at instilling in various companies here, he said.
The firm aims at generating 25 per cent of its global revenues from Asian region by 2010 and would set up Centres of Excellence -- one each in India, Japan and Singapore, Regional Marketing and Communications manager Anna Tehan said.
"China and India would contribute 30 per cent of the revenues from Asia Pacific," she said.
The 'Centre of Excellence' coming up in Mumbai would help train personnel in auditing, consulting, risk assurance and getting more partners from the country to extend its niche services, she said.
The firm would strengthen existing centres but is also looking for acquisitions for inorganic growth, she said.
Deloitte already has offices in as many as 13 locations across the country and is investing in personnel, technology and infrastructure, she said, adding that the Indian arm of the firm could figure among top six regions of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu's global operations.
