Truecaller opens Bengaluru office, primary in India and largest outside Sweden

Truecaller has opened an office in Bengaluru — its largest establishment outside Sweden.

Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship & Electronics and Information Technology, Rajeev Chandrasekhar, virtually inaugurated the office of the caller ID verification platform on Thursday (March 16).

The company said in a press release that the Bengaluru facility occupies a renovated space of 30,443 square feet and can accommodate up to 250 employees. It offers top-of-the-line technology and amenities.

Largest outside Stockholm

Truecaller plans to use this facility as its primary hub to deliver India-first features and serve users globally, it said. This office is the largest establishment of Truecaller outside its headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden.

Saying that India presented unique opportunities to launch new products and services on the Truecaller platform, the company spoke about how the feedback it obtained helped it to improve solutions further, which was crucial to its growth and innovation capabilities.

“India’s growth as tech partner”

Congratulating Truecaller, Chandrasekhar said the company’s decision to open an exclusive office in India shows India’s growth as a trusted technology partner to the world.

“The government’s vision and focus is on enabling entrepreneurship and expansion of a vibrant innovation and startup ecosystem in India,” Chandrasekhar said.
