Amazon India manager Amit Agarwal said the online retailer was upbeat not only about domestic sales, but also exports.

The campus building contains over 2.5 times more steel than the Eiffel Tower, measured by weight, and is spread over 9.5 acres of land.

The new campus, built in three years, is Amazon's first owned office outside the USA, and is the single largest building globally.

"This facility will build services globally", Agarwal added, citing examples like AWS, Kindle, Alexa, Amazon.in and Amazon Home Services, which is "innovating on things like doorstep pick-up and electronics fix".

With 15,000 work points across 1.8 million sq ft in office space, built on 3 million sq ft of construction site - this is Amazon's single largest building in the world in terms of total area, said Amazon Vice President of Global Real Estate and Facilities John Schoettler.

Agarwal said Amazon works with some 500,000 sellers, and has created over 200,000 jobs in India since launching its ecommerce operations in 2013.

Amazon India Country Head Amit Agarwal calls the campus "a tangible commitment to that long-term thinking and our plans for India".

The new campus is Amazon's first owned office building outside the US and is the single largest building globally. "This is day one for us in India, and we look forward to creating an environment where diverse contributions are welcomed and innovation encouraged for the long term", John Schoettler, Amazon vice president of global real estate and facilities. The office space of 1.8 million sq ft can seat 15,000 people.

With Amazon, the city's booming commercial market houses all the big tech including Apple, Microsoft, Google and others. "Outside of that we continue to invest in across our businesses". The company was looking at hiring more people as it was planning for organic growth.

This is the only Amazon-owned campus outside the US.

"As far as our services go, we don't see any slowdown". He said the campus was Amazon's largest in the world but has plenty more room to grow. "That business has actually crossed $1 billion and we expect it to grow to $5 billion in next three years".

The facility inaugurated by Deputy chief minister of Telangana Md Mahmood Ali, is spread over 3 million sq ft and can accommodate over 15,000 employees. Besides offices, Amazon in Telangana has three fulfilment centres offering more than 3.2 million cubic feet of storage space to sellers, two sort centres with 100,000 square feet of processing capacity and 90 delivery stations.
