The Indian arm of the global search engine and web provider, Yahoo, on Tuesday said that it had not put a freeze on hiring and that campus recruitment plans were still on.

"There is no freeze on hiring and campus recruitment is going ahead as per plan," Yahoo India's vice president and head of emerging markets, Gopal Krishna, said.

However, Krishna did not give any specific numbers that the company planned to hire through campus recruitments.

The company had recently laid-off three per cent of its total work force in India as a part of its cost-cutting drive in the wake of the global economic meltdown. Globally, Yahoo has cut down its workforce by 10 per cent.

In India, the impact of recession was minimal, Krishna said, adding that, "in the coming year, we will be focusing more on catering to the needs of the local market."

The company was also working on exclusive pages for the metro market, which would serve the specific requirements of people living in the metros, he said.

"The pages will serve as a dash board for the end-user and will be tailor-made to his needs," Krishna said.

To a question whether there was any cut in the outsourcing of contents, Gopal said, "over the last few years, we have witnessed an increase in the supply of content.
