Raipur, Oct 8 (IANS) The world's leading corporate houses are vying to hire Indians who have proved their mettle across the globe, said London-based Vedanta Resources plc chairman Anil Agrawal.

'I have been living abroad for the past 10 years. Indians have made a mark in all the countries during the past three years and made India proud,' Agrawal told media persons here Saturday.

He was visiting Chhattisgarh for the first time to attend a function in which Bharat Aluminium Company Ltd (Balco) signed a deal with the state government to invest Rs.50 billion to set up a 1,200 MW coal-based power plant.

The central government had sold 51 percent equity of Balco in 2001 to the Sterlite group, part of the Vedanta group.

'Indians have proved their talent and the world's leading companies have been competing with one another to recruit Indians as they believe they (Indians) are hardworking, flexible, honest and, above all, talented,' Agrawal said.

He said the Vedanta group has invested Rs.50 billion for Balco's expansion after gaining the management control, aiming to raise the production up to 3.5 million tonne per annum from one million tonne.

'World's top companies want to invest in mineral-rich Chhattisgarh and Vedanta will also increase the invest flow in the state as the state has potential of receiving $1 billion investment,' the noted NRI businessman said.
