Dell Inc., the world’s largest computer maker, will set up its fourth customer contact centre in India, Chief Executive Kevin Rollins said in a statement on Monday.

The company also plans to double the size of its India-based product development team during the next two years, the statement said.

The contact centre in Gurgaon, on the outskirts of Delhi, is expected to add up to 1,000 workers to Dell’s total Indian employment of 10,000 by the end of 2006.

India will be the only country in Dell’s 30-site customer contact network that supports customers in all geographic regions
