He added that "jobs get created when you have growth, when it is sustainable and solid."

At present, the total employee base of the conglomerate stands at 1.1 lakh, he said.

With the group's entry into services businesses like telecom, the percentage of women in the employee base has now gone up to 30 per cent, he said, but added that the proportion of women in managerial roles may not be as much.

He, however, said there are a lot of women two levels below the chief executive of a business and in 5-7 years, there will be many women business leaders.

Birla said the group treats its women employees at par with others, in accordance with its belief of letting a person grow on merit and added that women have proved themselves with their hard work.

He said the conglomerate has never taken a decision not to enter any business due to shortage of talent, but is facing difficulties with specialist talent.

Birla cited the case of hiring 20 data scientists at the corporate centre where it is facing some difficulties.

However, the group has always been successful in tiding over such difficulties, he added.
