Sun Microsystems is planning to set up a wholly owned subsidiary in India.
The company has applied for permission from the Indian government, claiming the growth rates in the subcontinent make it essential to expand its presence through a full subsidiary.
Sun began Indian operations two years ago through a liaison office at Delhi.
Through its expanded presence, it plans to develop and export hardware and software based around Java from India. It is also looking at possibly outsourcing some of its internal systems and software projects to outside developers in India.
