Web portal www.kannurindustry.gov.in for small industries was launched by Industries Minister Elamaram Karim here on Monday 19th November 2007.
The project initiated by District Collector Ishita Roy in association with the District Industries Centre, Kerala State Small Industries Association (KSSIA) district unit, Akshaya and the National Informatics Centre (NIC) was completed in a short span of time, NIC officials said.
With the launching of the portal, small industries here with SSI registration can reach out to national and global markets.
The DIC has been delegated the authority of the website and it will moderate the content.
The posting in the portal is exclusively for the industry organisations registered under the SSI scheme.
The Akshaya project district office will co-ordinate the participating agencies, officials said, adding that the web page design and data collection were being done by Akshaya entrepreneurs. The portal was developed, designed and hosted by the NIC which imparted training to the Akshaya entrepreneurs for content management and design. The KSSIA district unit would propagate and promote the web portal, they added.
