Kerala called God’s owned country is also considered to be 100% literate. However, it is very late in reissuing 78 lakh new ration cards. The update or ration cards are done by different government agencies and outside IT contractors but there seems to be no coordination. In comparison, the central government could issue on a timely basis without any hitch 100 crore Aadhar cards, 1 crore passport each year – with Kerala alone getting 11 lakh passports. So Kerala has a long way to go to become digitally literate.
