Tesla CEO Elon Musk bought the social media platform Twitter in October 2022, despite the purchase being initiated in April.
Two of the three Twitter offices in India have been closed and staff have been told to work from home, media reported on Friday.
The social media giant's Delhi and Mumbai offices have been shut as per the company’s new CEO Elon Musk’s mission to cut costs and get the struggling social media service in the black, the reports said.
However, the Bengaluru office in Karnataka state will continue to operate. Most of the engineers are housed in this office.

Notably, the social media company has already fired more than 90 percent of its nearly 200-plus staff in India late last year.
Musk has fired staff and shut offices across the world in a bid to make the company financially stable by late 2023.
Since his purchase of the firm, Twitter has failed to pay millions of dollars in rent for its San Francisco and London offices. It has also been sued by multiple contractors over unpaid services and auctioned off everything from bird statues to espresso machines to raise money.
