Andhra Pradesh is gearing up for big BPO boom in the near future. The IT and ITES companies will be creating 18000 jobs in Andhra Pradesh for the educated youth. The jobs will be created under IBPS (India BPO Promotion Scheme) in 12th plan period.
Central Government will give incentives to the BPO companies in small and medium towns and cities. About 2200 seats will be given to AP by Central Government on incentive basis.
About 15 companies have secured approvals for BPO activities in AP, as informed by Software Technology Parks of India (STPI). BPO centers have been set up at Guntur, Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, Rajahmundry, Chittoor and Tirupati.
More companies will start BPO operations as the Central Government is considering to allot more seats to Andhra Pradesh to boost the employment opportunities in the new state.
