Rural BPO

India has rapidly achieved the status of being the most preferred destination for Business Process Outsourcing for national and international players. The availability of low cost skilled manpower, a huge English speaking population and appropriate infrastructure have been the main reasons for the companies outsourcing their operations to India.

As an initiative, in the year 2007, the Krishnagiri District Administration established India's first Rural Business Process Outsourcing unit at Sanasandiram, Chennathur Panchayat, Hosur Block.

The youth who have passed the 10th Standard and above are identified from the rural areas which include naxal affected villages and trained to work in a BPO and are subsequently employed.

Based on the above success, the State Government has announced in the floor of the Assembly that it proposes to promote the concept of Rural BPO as a commercial model through ELCOT. 100 Rural BPOs will be established throughout the State.
