e-District is a State Mission Mode Project under the National e-Governance Plan. e-District as a concept proposes integrated, seamless, and online delivery of citizen services at the district level through automation of work flow, backend digitization, integration and process redesign. The project aims to target aggregate services delivered at the district level and to undertake back-end computerization for enabling the delivery of citizen services through Akshaya Centres. The Government has implemented the pilot e-District project with the vision of making all Government services accessible to the common man in his locality, through Akshaya centres and to ensure efficiency, transparency & reliability of such services.
Started in 2008, the pilot phase of the project was implementing in Kannur and Palakkad districts. KSITM has been identified as the Implementation Agency for the project.
