India's second largest IT services company on Friday announced that it has started construction of its US education centre in Indianapolis, entailing an initial investment of $35 million.

In a statement, said that the training campus and residential centre for its staff, as well as employees of select clients aim to prepare the American workforce for the technology jobs of the future.

"The company is providing an initial investment of $35 million to create the first 125,000 square feet of development, transforming the 70.5-acre site into an innovative training centre," the company said.

The first phase of the project is expected to be complete by 2020 end.
