Tech companies are getting quite frustrated with India's business climate. "Doing business in India is difficult because the problem is there are too many decision makers," complains Dell's (DELL) Asia-Pac chief. "We continue to see India challenged largely self-inflicted by their own internal issues," said Cisco's (CSCO) John Chambers during Wednesday's earnings call. Multinationals in general have complained about retroactive taxes, infrastructure problems, unclear investment rules, and much else.

    I would like to add that tech companies are not the only ones "quite frustrated" with India. Have you had to make a support call?
    If I cannot understand the person giving me the support, how is it support?
    I hear over and over complaints from people who have tried to communicate with a support person that does not speak English in an understandable accent.
    Most that I have had an encounter with could not solve simple problems. It seemed as if they were reading from a manual, and even if I explained the problem as different from what they were saying, they would repeat the advice.
    I must also add that I have had a few occasions to actually get someone who was very obviously an English speaking American, and each of these times I was able to understand them and solve my problem in short order.
    Sorry for the rant, but this seemed a good forum for this comment.
    Maybe part of the overall problem is communication.
