In a bid to implement mobile governance in the state, Kerala has announced the availability of lottery results via mobile phones through SMS.

The initiative has been taken under the Kerala State IT Mission (KSITM) to implement mobile governance in the state. The above assignment is entrusted to MobME Wireless Solutions, a telecom solutions company.

MobMe has been associated with several other projects in the state such as Mobile Incident Capture Platform aimed at furthering the application of m-governance for effective and transparent administration through the participation of the people. The project, which has been included in the State government's 100-day programme, is expected to assist also in the upkeep of law and order. The KSITM will be the nodal agency for the implementation of the project.

As part of the project, KSITM and MobME Wireless Solutions, a telecom solutions company, have jointly developed a platform that will facilitate citizens to bring any incident, which they feel should be brought to the notice of the government, via Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS).

The MMS from citizens will be forwarded in real time to the Internet-based platform developed for the project. Police personnel in charge of the project will be able to access the MMS images using the user ID and password given to them. The message so received would be forwarded to the departments concerned based on which appropriate action would be initiated. The officials concerned will be alerted of the receipt of a new MMS though a SMS. Besides, citizens sending the MMS will also be given an acknowledgment through SMS.
