Multinational tech giant Microsoft recently unveiled its IDC (India Development Centre) facility situated in Delhi NCR-Noida. The architecture of the space is inspired by the marvellous heritage monument Taj Mahal. The new R&D facility will serve as the engineering hub for its technicians to create technology for its users in India and across the globe. This Noida based office is Microsoft's third centre in India after Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The new workspace is spread across the top three floors of a six-storey building in Noida and is designed with intricate architectural work.

The organisation remarks that the facility is in line with its commitment to sustainability and has implemented energy and water conservation practices to reduce carbon footprint.
In a statement Rajiv Kumar, managing director, Microsoft IDC said, "It's really about two aspects. One is to build a world-class product development organization in India. It's a dream I had when I came back to India from Redmond in 2005 when there was nothing. In order to attract the best talent from the country, you have to go to the places where they are. So, we started in the middle of the country when we opened the Hyderabad centre and then went south with the Bengaluru centre. My vision to create the Noida centre was to attract the best talent that graduates from some of the world-class engineering and management institutions in the country's north".
