The technology is growing at a rapid pace and is changing lives and businesses both qualitatively and quantitatively. In Kerala, all 14 districts are part of the 50 e-District projects in India. We have issued 1.75 crore digital certificates and provided 1 GB broadband connectivity to all the Gram Panchayats, thus making Kerala the first Digital State of India. In recent years, we have undertaken several innovative initiatives like e-District, e-Procurement, e-Office and digital literacy, among others.
