This would support the development of infrastructure and human capital in smaller cities and lay the groundwork for the subsequent wave of IT/ITES-led growth. Taking into account three-shift operations, this programme has the potential to generate 1.5 lakh direct work opportunities. Indirect jobs may also be produced in significant numbers.
