The Government of Tamil Nadu is holding talks with various companies and colleges for setting up of Rural Business Process Outsourcing Centres, with an aim of taking the IT sector to rural areas.
The government recently unveiled its highly ambitious Rural Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Policy, unveiling an incentive-based approach to encourage establishment of BPOs in rural areas.
"We are holding talks with several companies and engineering colleges as part of the process", officials said. The government wanted the engineering colleges to offer training to the students so as to make them employable in BPO sector when they passed out as graduates.
On setting up of the BPO centres in rural areas, officials beliave it will take some time, as the government was looking to bring BPO providers and entrepreneurs under one platform.
The officials job is to bring the entrepreneurs and companies on to one platform. Firstly, they have to finalise the companies that will provide employment and identify those entrepreneurs who are ready to provide basic infrastructure.
