Kerala is all set for a giant leap in e-Governance.
Following in the footsteps of states like Maharashtra, Uttarakhand and Karnataka, the state will form a Virtual IT cadre to conceptualise, implement and manage e-Governance projects.
The idea is to build a team through internal selection from skilled and qualified employees within departments and to deploy them as Virtual IT cadre. The formation of Virtual IT cadre is proposed to be done in a phased manner. The pilot phase (January to March 2015) envisages creation of Virtual IT cadre teams in 16 selected departments in government secretariat, with an intake of 30 members.
