This comes after the German lender said it was planning to cut its global headcount by 20,000 but hire an additional 300 client-facing employees by 2021.
A spokesperson for the bank confirmed to International Adviser: “Wealth will hire 19 people, the majority of whom will be relationship managers.”
It will also look to launch a discretionary portfolio management service.
The Indian operation received a €470m (£426m, $541m) capital injection earlier this year.
Amit Bhatia, Deutsche Bank’s India head of private and commercial clients, said to news outlet Bloomberg: “The India franchise is given the mandate to expand, as this is a growth market, and everyone has high expectations from this country.
“Plans are on for aggressive growth, and we have been assured that capital is not going to be a concern.”
Assets under management in the Indian private banking business now stand at around INR170bn (£1.94bn, $2.37bn, €2.14bn) up by INR20bn since October.
