Pune significantly trails other cities in number of developers?

Bhavin Turakhia of Directi believes that the biggest challenge facing a small startup in India today is the avaiability of talent. To get a feel for which city has the best pool of developers, he and his team did some keyword searches on top job sites and have published their findings on Bhavin’s blog. The results are interesting – while I am not surprised that Bangalore is head and shoulders ahead of Pune, I was surprised that Hyderabad, NCR and even Chennai are significantly ahead of Pune:


  • Bangalore has 2.5 times the number of Java resumes of Mumbai
  • In terms of total resumes from each city the ranking is in the following order – Bangalore, Hyderabad, NCR, Chennai, Delhi, Pune, and lastly Mumbai
  • As an example, here is the citywise count of Resumes that contained the keyword Java
    • Bangalore – 123,205
    • Hyderabad- 114,561
    • NCR – 85,347
    • Chennai – 82459
    • Pune – 54,086
    • Delhi – 53,256
    • Mumbai – 43,672
