Kerala Government's programme, Akshaya will be launched soon in Kannur district of the state. A government initiative, Akshaya provides web portals in Malayalam to all gram panchayats in the state.
The government has implemented the project with the financial and technical assistance from UNESCO. The portals will function from the Akshaya centres in each area and they will feature the local history, information about prominent individuals, organisations, institutions and places of special interest in each panchayat. The portal will contain agricultural information, list of enterprises and the products manufactured by them, employment opportunities available in the locality and the services provided by the local self-government institutions. Community facilitators from community groups will collect the local level information, and the Akshaya entrepreneurs will compile information. The compiled information will be processed by content managers and content editors and transferred to the portal.
