Microsoft Corporation CEO Satya Nadella will visit his home town Hyderabad next month, an official said on Saturday. A Telangana government official told IANS that Nadella will be visiting the city in December.
The date and other details are yet to be finalised. Nadella is likely to meet Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and also his Andhra Pradesh counterpart N. Chandrababu Naidu besides visiting the Microsoft India Development Centre here.
This will be his second visit to Hyderabad after taking over as the head of the global software giant last year. The 47-year-old during his first visit in September last year had met Telangana chief minister and spoke to Naidu over phone.
Telangana Information Technology Minister K. Tarakarama Rao had also called on Nadella during his visit to the US in May this year. Microsoft plans to expand its operations in Hyderabad while Naidu is also trying to woo it to have its presence in Andhra Pradesh.
Microsoft has its India development center here. Set up in 1998, it is the largest R&D center of Microsoft outside its Redmond (US) facility.
