he Kerala State Information e district e district Technology Mission (KSITM) is gearing up for a State-wide roll out of e-district Kerala, a mission mode project under the national e-governance plan.
District e-governance committees have been formed in all the 14 districts. As many as 10-lakh digital certificates have been issued to applicants in less than two years since the launch of the pilot project in Kannur and Palakkad districts.
The KSITM is the implementation agency for the project under which a citizen can submit applications online anytime, even on holidays, for the permissible services. All certificates are issued through the e-district portal, which includes the digital signature of the issuing officer concerned. The State had issued a Government Order endorsing the validity of digitally signed certificates and confirming its acceptance.
