make PDF, ePub and a responsive web site of the contents of its handbook
about hundreds of welfare/assistance schemes meant for the population. The
book was released yesterday by Pinarayi Vijayan, chief minister of Kerala

to release the content and the digital formats under the terms of Creative
Commons license which might be the first of its kind by a government in

Along with the government, Sayahna too hosted the content which can be
accessed at


While it'll be dutch to my non-Malayalam speaking friends, it might be

If you live in Kerala, kindly share the links so that it reaches the
maximum number of people to enable them to avail the many
benefits/assistance offered by the government.
