Department of Sainik Welfare has planned to open a computer centre to train ex-servicemen at Thrissur district in Kerala, India.

It was felt that making ex-servicemen, especially those under the age of 45, computer-literate, as an important step towards rehabilitation. Of the 1.46 lakh ex-servicemen in the state, 11,842 are from Thrissur. They include world war veterans, retired short-service commissioned officers and personnel who opted for retirement after fifteen years of service. The Department of Sainik Welfare plans to associate with national agencies in this regard. Qualified teachers from these agencies would handle the classes. Basic courses such as MS Office are on offer to start with. The total fee for each course is Rs.100. The basic qualification of the candidates should be SSLC.
