GovTechThon 2021

Hackathons are the events where software developers, domain experts and programmers come together to collaborate for developing innovative, problem-solving software prototypes.

With this Tirunelveli GovTechThon, Tirunelveli District administration envisages finding solutions, that promote efficiency and high-quality service delivery in government agencies, by leveraging the power of citizens and innovation. Government representatives from various departments have identified the below-mentioned challenges that could be solved using data and technology. We invite startups, students, coders, developers, designers, engineers, data scientists, and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from industry, academia to develop technology solutions to the challenges listed and share them with us within the deadline. Selected teams will be invited for further discussion in implementing the same.

Win or lose, we are certain that new lessons will be learned, ideas will be tested, limits will be pushed and lives will be changed forever

Food adulteration identification through AI/IOT.

You are what you eat ! Is the milk that you drink or the rice that you eat daily really safe ? If not , how do you check if it's free from any adulteration? How about creating a really cool mobile app or smart device based solution that can "nudge" a consumer to check for adulteration before buying any food and offer solutions on how to check and identify adulterated food. An informed choice will definitely tend to drive an "Eat Right" awareness in the society.
