First jail BPO , Raju RamaLinga as CEO!

Cherlapally Central Jail(Andhra Pradesh) in India will soon open the  first-ever BPO unit.
All set up will be done by Radiant Info Systems.

Presently, the Cherlapally Central Jail houses as many as 2,000 prisoners of which the prison authorities will shortlist 250 convicts to work at the BPO center. They will be provided with adequate training before the BPO facility becomes operational.

As the Supreme Court has cancelled the bail granted by Andhra Pradesh High Court, former Satyam chairman B Ramalinga Raju will be going back to jail.

At the same time, Prisons Department of Andhra Pradesh is planning to use Raju's expertise in handling operations efficiently at the country's first prison BPO unit, which is set to be operational from November 1, reports Saswati Mukherjee from The Economic Times.

Definitely Raju's long years of industry experience would going to make it as a profitable venture, improve the existing infrastructure and also seek his opinion on how best to utilize manpower available at our unit.

The prison department has already started negotiations with some banking sector firms in Canada to pocket the first international project for the BPO. The BPO workers for this project too will be required to closely examine scanned documents in various categories. These documents would be of a non-confidential nature, and there is no scope of tampering by the BPO workers, who are all convicted prisoners.

According to reports, Radiant Info Systems will establish a data processing unit in the jail with an initial workforce of approximately 60 to 70 inmates. As the jail rules in India do not permit the convicts to avail Internet facilities, they will basically deal with data processing, data entry and data transmission work and will receive a monthly payment of INR 4,500 (around $100).
