Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is mulling promotion of business process outsourcing (BPO) in rural areas in association with its member companies and through centres of excellence.

Talking to reporters here on Tuesday, CII southern region Chairman and CEO and Managing Director of Infosys Technologies Limited, Bangalore, S. Gopalakrishnan said that “There is a tremendous possibility to set up the BPOs in rural areas as most of the citizen services are being provided in local or regional languages.”

He said BPOs were one significant sector that offered new possibility to tap the potential in rural areas and a holistic approach was being made in this regard.

He said CII was also interested in promotion of entrepreneurship development and skill development schemes on lines with the experiments made elsewhere.

He said he along with the office bearers of the Puducherry unit of CII had discussed with Puducherry Chief Minister V. Vaithilingam various issues relating to the union territory including city decongestion, urban renewal, health care, uninterrupted power supply, mobility of labour and single window concept.
