… as Big Star sang back in the 70s. (The India Song in case you were wondering which one)

And a little discussion of India as it relates to PR has kicked off at TWL.

"In Amhmedabad, 300 miles north of Mumbai, for example, an offshoring company called Hi-Tech Export is currently offering a discounted rate of £189 for 40 hours of editing services. That’s £9,000 for a notional 48-week year, with overheads absorbed into what we presume to be a
still-handsome margin."

How long before the outsourcing of press release writing, release distribution, clippings analysis, etc is being done from India for similiar rates to these?
