Kerala the first digital State

President Pranab Mukherjee, on Saturday, declared the State the first digital one in the country, while inaugurating UL Cyber Park, an IT park under the Uralungal Labour Contract Cooperative Society. He also launched the Digital Employment Campaign and the Kanivu Scheme, and dedicated the Gender Park of the Department of Social Justice.

He said it was heartening to note that Kerala now had over 600 e-governance applications covering almost all departments, and delivering e-services. The State has a mobile tele-density of 95 per cent and Internet covered over 60 per cent of the population. With broadband connectivity in every grama panchayat, Kerala has emerged a truly digital State.
