Here is an update of the training program given by ELCOT to Village Panchayat officers. The training of officers need volunteers. Currently the local Linux User Group CHENNAILUG providing full support to this new initiative.
Recently the Tamil Nadu Government with guidance from ELCOT decided to go opensource way for supporting their total IT infrastructure. Mr.Umashankar of ELCOT is leading this effort.
Hope more positive FLOSS initiatives will come out this year.
