Indian Government Started Kerala State Lotteries
Lotteries are quite an innovative form of fundraising for governments and nations, as it offers the players a chance to win a life changing amount whilst also then be able to utilise any proceeds for investment back into the country or state. This is why they have been used for several centuries already, with early lottery systems to fund nations being setup even around the 1500s. This particular governmental lottery group is called the Kerala State Lotteries and operates several weekly lotteries within this Indian state.
They are also the first form of this type of lottery within the country and have grown considerably since their inception, boasting a healthy number of employees and therefore an effect on the unemployment in the state as well. Overall the perks of such a lottery system is rather plentiful and benefits everyone involved.
History and Benefits of Kerala State Lotteries
Kerala State Lotteries began in 1967, clearly within the state of Kerala, India. Currently it operates under the tax department of the Kerala government and hosts 7 weekly lotteries and 6 bumper lotteries. This summates to some 35000 authorised agents and around 100000 retailers selling tickets. The employment opportunities are undeniably evident. On top of this it helps fund development throughout the state for things like schools, hospitals and roads. There are definitely benefits to such a system as the players involved experience a rather win-win from playing as they’re not only entering into a chance to win some serious money, but they’re also help fund and build their community at the same time.
