Punjab will send a team led by the chief secretary to the Infosys headquarters at Bengaluru for studying the scope of giving skill training to the state's youth, especially the people in villages.
Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal took a decision to this effect here on Saturday evening during his meeting with Infosys chairman NR Narayana Murthy, who suggested to him to send over a team to interact with the information technology giant's experts to find a workable strategy.
Badal thanked the Infosys chairman for agreeing to build a 50-acre campus in Punjab's IT hub of SAS Nagar, saying it would be an asset to the state and lead it to a new horizon. Murthy expressed his gratitude to the CM for his support to the project.
Referring to the rural business process outsourcing (BPO) scheme of the nationalised banks as a source of employment generation for rural youth, Murthy said the Rajasthan government had implemented the model already.
