The highlight of the week was the Kerala Government amending the Kerala Education Rules to make the computer printout of Birth Certificate a valid document for school admissions. This decision will make life easy for thousands of parents who have to literally run from pillar to post during the admission season to get a Birth Certificate. This would also mark a fall in an extra income for many in the village offices and municipalities.
The week also saw Kerala IT News breaking the news about the winding up of BlueLabs, a company based in Infopark. In what can be seen as a classic case of mismanagement of the company, about 100 unfortunate IT professionals lost their jobs.
