The report, which highlighted the strong growth prospects of freelancing in India and the challenges faced by Indian freelancers, was based on a survey of 500 freelancers from across the country.

The survey found that most Indian freelancers are men and are aged under 40. Out of all the freelancers surveyed, 41 percent said they had seen very fast growth in the last 12 months, and 80 percent confirmed that they were working on both international and domestic assignments.
