Now, Kerala based Akshaya e-Kendras will provide medical transcription training to rural people. Initially, Akshaya e-Kendras will launch the training programme in Malappuram district.
Akshaya will provide medical transcription training in collaboration with Kerala State Electronics Development Corp (Keltron) and it would be monitored by the state's IT Mission. After evaluating the first phase of the initiative, the training programme will be extended to other Akshaya centres. The transcription training will be for six months and will cost INR 15,000. Each centre will have two trainers with either postgraduate diploma in computer applications or diploma in computer applications. The project aims to make at least one person each from the 6.5-million families in the state 'e-literate' and provide rural connectivity, e-transaction and e-governance, besides generating employment.
