Sounds good. When I heard Kerala, something like Bangalore IT came to my mind. Later I learnt that Kerala does not even have a website of its own. ( domain is owned and parked by someone else.).

Let us not forget AK Antony’s GIM (Global Investors Meet) exercises, which wasa given much publicity and didn’t turn out beneficial for the state as hyped.

Anyway, all the best for the programmes and hope that, the event will get more visibility and would help attract more companies and investors to Kerala.

After the completion of my 7th semester I want to do a 6months training i.e. January 2011 to June 2011 (8th semester). Please give me a chance of 6months training under your esteemed organisation. Awaiting your early reply.
    Thanking you,

    Yours faithfully,

  2. Thank you Nikhil.
    I tried to phone the IT department, but the phone calls went from one person to another as if in a round-robin algorithm!

    So I emailed IT secretary and CM through the government website. Also send an email to Additional Secretary of IT and Kerala IT Mission.
