Redmond company’s Mumbai team unaffected by bombings

The terrorist attack in Mumbai on Tuesday didn’t directly affect MAQ Software, a Redmond-based company with a big office in the Indian financial center.

“It seems that all of our people are fine as far as we know. We will lose part of the day tomorrow because trains will be disrupted,” Rajeev Agarwal, managing consultant, said via email.

MAQ now has a redundant setup in India. It has opened another office in Hyderabad, where a number of Seattle tech companies have outposts.

Hyderabad doesn’t have the density and mass transit of Mumbai, which is India’s equivalent of New York City, but the smaller city is not immune to violent flareups by rebel groups. When I was there a few years ago the guidebooks warned visitors about rebels operating in a nearby tiger preserve.
