Thiruvananthapuram, Mar 13 (UNI) Kerala is all set to become the first e-literate state in the country by the end of this year, Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan said.

Inaugurating the Kerala IT.Com 2008, a three-day exhibition here today, he said the Akshaya project being implemented in the state would ensure basic computer literacy to at least one member of each family throughout the state. Akshaya had launched delivery of key e-Governance like e-payment facilities, e-forms, product selling and training programmes, he added.

He said Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi had been ranked as the most attractive IT and ITES destinations in India. Many nationally and internationally renowned companies had already came forward with requests for built-up space and land.

IT parks would be developed in all districts of Kerala in a hub and spoke model with the hubs in Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Kozhikode and spokes in all the remaining districts.
