Balasore to get its first ever rural BPO

Bhubaneswar, Dec 4:  In a bid to give sustainable employment to the rural youth, super economic growth to the region and full advantage of the government’s India BPO Promotion Scheme (IBPS) to the people, Balasore MP Rabindra Kumar Jena is all set to give the district its first ever Rural BPO. The move is expected to bring IT revolution in the district.

“In order to explore the potential of Balasore to emerge as a knowledge centre as well as the human capital present in the intellectual capital of Odisha, I have been talking to many leading players in this field for some time now. Given the high literacy rate (80%) in the district and the strategic location, Balasore is emerging as an important economic hub in East India and a Rural BPO would go a long way in leveraging its tremendous potential.”

“With the increased government focus on transforming into a ‘Digital India’ and subsequent policy initiatives pertaining to promotion of BPOs in the country, the environment is extremely conducive for developing Balasore as a knowledge centre,” he added.

The said BPO will be set up in the Jaleswar block of the district. To realise Balasore's true potential, more such centres in other areas of the district will be opened. Candidates from only Jaleswar and Basta blocks can apply for job in this BPO. They need to submit the form with requisites at the MP’s office. Selection will be done by professionals and selected candidates will undergo certain trainings. Job placement will be done on the basis of merit and skill.

Minimum criteria to be fulfilled by the interested candidates are at least 10th and Plus II pass, 18 years of age, knowledge on Bengali, Odia and English language and interest to work in shifts.
