I. NAME OF THE SECTOR                    : 34. STATIONERY AND PRINTING

 

II. INTRODUCTION OF THE SECTOR    :

 

Department of Printing & Stationery undertakes the printing requirements of the administration and other institutions.  Private printing works are also undertaken on payment of printing charges in advance. 

 

            Lakshadweep Govt. Press was started as a mini press at Calicut and it was shifted to Kavaratti during 1983.  Now apart from the Headquarter Press there are Unit Presses in all islands except Bitra.

 

            Lakshadweep Gazette, Note Books,  Telephone Directories, Posters and Multicolour pamphlets, Diary, Calendar, Voyage Schedule, Basic Statistics, Electoral rolls, Forms and Registers, Ballot paper etc. are printed by this department.  Identity Cards to Govt. Officials, Pensioners, Panchayat Members and Voters Identity Card etc are also printed from Lakshadweep Govt. Press.

 

            Lakshadweep Times, the official news paper of the Administration is printed and published from Lakshadweep Govt. Press, Kavaratti.  Mahal version of the Lakshadweep Times is also printed from Press Unit Minicoy.

 

Considering the tremendous increase in the printing requirements it is proposed to modernize the Headquarter Press by providing modern machineries and facilities.  Though new Unit Presses were started, additional staff could not be created.  It is also proposed to start simultaneous publication of Lakshadweep Times from all islands.  Therefore the main objective of the Annual Plan 2011- 2012 is to modernize and strengthen the Headquarter Press / Unit Presses.
