Dr.G.Venkateswara Rao Reader in physics, was selected by the Commissioner of Collegiate Education, A.P. Hyderabad to attend Infosys sponsored workshop on “BPO and skill sets required to succeed in a BPO career” conducted from 17.09.2007 to 29.09.2007 at Infosys, Gachibowli, Hyderabad.

In this connection, the Commissioner of Collegiate Education is pleased to sanction JKC training Centers to the Colleges, which in turn will be attached to the nodal JKC. The purpose of JKC is to enhance the employability of the young graduates by imparting communication skills, soft skills & computer oriented skills and also to encourage creativity and self learning for pursuing higher education. The students admitted into JKCs will be trained in “industry required skills” under the mentor training network. The main objective of this programme is to provide job opportunities to undergraduate students willing to move on to employment and to remove the long existing gap between the rural and urban students community.
The JKCs in colleges at undergraduate level are having wide scope for campus recruitments. Even the best of the candidates from the remote areas are getting deprived of a chance to get into the established institutions/companies. Majority of the students are weak in soft skills and communication skills that the industries/companies need and these can be imparted well in a good environment.
