Well its about a Rural BPO which has been set up in the most backward taluk of Pavagada ( in Tumkur Dist of Karnataka )
It employs 100 people & hence directly supports 100 families in the taluk.
From the past 2 months, they are undergoing training on English, Basic Computer operations and Typing.
A lot of dreams are associated with the making of it. Most of the employees come from financially backward families and hence this provides them a great livelihood opportunity for them & their families.
Pavagada which has been the cynosure of naxal activities from quite sometime is geared up for a change, a new revolution.
The only short coming of this venture is that our Urban-IT industry people somehow have a bad notion about the quality of the work which the rural employees can provide. Hence it is too hard to convince them to outsource their back office data entry work to us. Given one chance, I am sure this wrong notion will be warded away, cos I firmly believe that the talent pool in our rural areas is equally (if not more ) competent than their urban peers.
