About the Department

The Government's vision is to turn Kerala into a knowledge society with sustainable economic growth, social harmony and high quality of life for all. The Government plans to achieve this vision through some proactive measures that are meant to accelerate the process of transforming the State into a knowledge society. In keeping with the democratic traditions of the country, the government ensures that all sections of the society are included in this process of transformation and will adopt conscious, positive steps to confirm the inclusion of the disadvantaged sections of society in the transformation process.

Our department adopts such measures as are necessary to encourage the willful participation of the digitally privileged sections in the efforts to prevent the less privileged sections from getting marginalized in the transformation process. We made use of ICT to ensure transparency, efficiency and quality of services to the citizens of the state. We shall promote appropriate applications of ICT to rejuvenate and strengthen the primary, secondary and tertiary sectors of the State's economy.

What we do?

Our department strives to improve the standard of living of the people through the use of ICT in all sectors, enhance productivity and efficiency, optimize utilisation of resources and increase the employment potential of the ICT sector. We shall make all efforts to provide the infrastructure for the rapid growth and adoption of ICT in the state, including, but not limited to access to ICT for all sections of the population, development of high speed communication facilities, infrastructure for the IT industry and development of human resources.

We shall endeavor to create a favorable climate in the State for increased economic activity and investments in the ICT, ITES and knowledge-based industry sector. In doing so, the State expects to exploit to the fullest extent, the potential of these new sectors to generate stable employment, earn foreign exchange and promote long term investments.

We recognize that Kerala's highly skilled and well educated workforce is a strategic differentiator as an investment destination. It shall continue to invest substantially in programs and initiatives to sustain this advantage. We will make Kerala the cradle of highly skilled manpower for the knowledge-based industry. We realize that Free Software presents a unique opportunity in building a truly egalitarian knowledge society. We will take all efforts to develop Free Software and shall encourage and mandate the appropriate use of Free Software in all ICT initiatives.
