The Kerala government has embarked on a strategy to leverage the Blockchain technology to streamline purchase and distribution network of milk, vegetables and fish in the state.

The state will also make its crop insurance scheme smarter and fool-proof, ensuring quick processing and settlement of claims to farmers suffering crop losses, a release said here today.

The project is being implemented through the Kerala Development and Innovation Strategic Council (K-DISC), state’s think-tank mandated to formulate and implement plans to create a healthy and conducive ecosystem with the help of new technologies.

While there has not been any details on how the state plans to implement this, moreso because most state governments still do not have requisite trained manpower to implement blockchain projects.

Most likely seems like a private partnership with technology firm(s) of state government.
