The project was started after a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between Climate Smart Technologies, a Coimbatore-based startup, and the college which has been awarded the heritage status by UGC.

“Every government department has dozens of forms to be filled for availing a particular service. Instead of visiting the offices to obtain forms, we planned to develop Android apps loaded with the applications forms which can be filled through mobile phones and applied,” said Jeevanandhan Duraisamy, founder of Climate Smart Technologies.

As per the MoU signed by the college and the startup, 68 more such Android applications will be developed in a month’s time.

Developed by 85 students from the college’s computer science department, the apps will go live once the respective government departments provide access to accept third-party data for receiving the applications.
