In an attempt to promote the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) business in rural pockets, the Kakinada Special Economic Zone (KSEZ) has opened a state-of-the-art Rural BPO at Kotha Mulapeta village of Uppada Kothapalli mandal on Wednesday.
The KSEZ, in association with the Tata Business Support Services Limited (TBSSL), one of the largest domestic BPO services companies in India, has set up the centre for which 20 youths from the relief and rehabilitation colony have been recruited.
The BPO was inaugurated jointly by GMR-KSEZ president Prasanna Challa and TBSSL MD Srinivas Koppolu at a programme at Kotha Mulapeta.
Srinivas Koppolu said the centre had the capacity to provide job to 200 youths and its operations would commence from the next month. Prasanna Challa said that the KSEZ would provide world-class infrastructure, including digital connectivity to the Rural BPO.
“Unemployed youth from the villages in and around the KSEZ will be imparted with pre-employment training by the GMR Varalakshmi Foundation, the CSR wing of the group,” he said.
“Priority will be given to the evacuees in and those which have parted their land to the KSEZ while providing employment,” he said.
