There are lots of checks to do before hiring in India:
You need to check their salary expectations – and you need to check what they were paid before. India is very much a negotiation culture and many people will tell you they are earning a lot more than they are, so to check previous earnings it is a really good idea to ask to see salary slips.
You need to also do medical, residential and criminal checks – in such a vast country you need to ensure you know where your team comes from and their state of health. It’s also a good idea for senior people to check they really do have the qualifications they claim – it is not unknown to find that false claims about degrees and courses.
