According to a report by the Financial Times, the iPhone maker is preparing to open retail stores in the country.

Currently, the company’s website lists over a hundred results for job positions in India, the report adds. The retail positions for various locations within the country were also listed recently. These locations include major cities including Mumbai and New Delhi.

Apple’s plans for retail stores in India

Apart from the direct jobs, Apple’s suppliers and its manufacturing ecosystem in the country have created nearly 100,000 indirect jobs.
