K-SWAN: Kerala State Wide Area Network. With an aim to provide much efficient e-Governance, the Govt of Kerala has decided to start Department-WAN which will link department offices with the Kerala State Wide Area Network. Subsequent to its implementation Departments will not only have more efficient/transparent delivery mechanisms, but will also have updated information at all levels for monitoring, and more importantly for planning. The network will include major offices, such as public works, civil supplies, excise and land revenue departments, panchayat department, department of urban affairs, commercial taxes department, and directorate of industries and commerce.
- Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has been hired to establish the Department WAN and connect the existing local area networks in these major office complexes.
