Propelling itself ahead of other states in e-initiatives, Kerala will be declared India’s first ‘Digital State’ on August 15. This will be followed by the launch of several projects including high-speed Internet and Wi-fi services in government schools and e-office in all government offices.
The government will also unveil ‘Digital Literacy-Phase II’ as part of its Vision 2020 programme.
The state will also tap into central government’s Bharat Net project, to be established by 2017. Government also plans to develop a single mobile application covering a variety of government services.
