Videocon plans 25,000-strong BPO unit

May 18, 2006 18:33 IST
The Videocon group would set up a BPO unit at Salt Lake, Kolkata, employing 25,000 people, its chairman Venugopal Dhoot said on Thursday.

He said the group has sought 100 acres at Kolkata's new township of RajarhatĀ for putting up a colourĀ television component manufacturing unit.

''The response of the state government is very positive,'' he said.

Videocon had earlier taken over the manufacturing unit of Philips at Salt Lake where it is now producing kitchen
appliances.

The group had last year bought the lamp manufacturing unit of Philips at Taratala in south Kolkata.
