The campaigns will be carried out with the support of the local bodies as well as district e-governance societies.
The state government will soon roll out a digital empowerment campaign to create awareness about its various digital initiatives at the grassroots level with the help of Akshaya centres, Kudumbasree volunteers, Student Police Cadets, NCC cadets and National Service Scheme volunteers.
The project is a follow-up of a digital literacy drive started by the Kerala State IT Mission in 2015 to impart digital literacy among the rural masses with the help of Student Police Cadets (SPCs).
The IT Mission will launch the fresh campaign to promote digital payment options. m-Kerala, the mobile app for e-governance services, would also be popularised through the campaign.
According to IT department sources, the LDF government wants to digitally empower the citizens of the state through various projects like Kerala Fibre Optic Network (KFON) and giving free internet connectivity to 20 lakh below poverty line families.
The campaigns will be carried out with the support of the local bodies as well as district e-governance societies. The government has sanctioned Rs 17 crore for the project.
In 2015, the IT Mission had launched the digital literacy programme by imparting basic digital training covering aspects like internet, e-mail, social media and introductions to digital devices like tablet computers to the rural masses through SPCs. The programme was conducted with the support of Tata Consultancy Services.
