MAHE is a tiny point in the Geographical map of kerala. the million earner for the distant Puducherry Gov-ernment, 625 Kms away from Puducherry. In this former small French Town which covers an area of 9 Sq.kms, over 40,000 inhabitants live in peace. This petit French town is situated on the west coast of the Indian Peninsula between Badagara and Thalassery, 59Kms From Kozhi¬kode, 24 Kms from Kannur in Kerala State and is a busy trade centre, which enjoys tax concessions of Central Gov¬ernment.
As consequent to the current political policies, the State and Central Government are mini¬mising their stakes in the services sector such as health. Education and production. Such a political situation has brought in a kind of intertia and feel of uncertainty about future amongst the educated youths as a whole in our society which is intended to address the current problems faced by the younger generation. In order to equip the youth to cope with the modern era, the society has decided to concen¬trate to tax the unfathomable possibilities in the field of Information Technology by producing high-tech professionals who are capable to meet the global demand.
The society is organised by admitting members. Members are the residents of Mahe Region who are 18 years and above age. Beside, the Government of Puducherry is also providing financial support. Society acquired whole assets mainly from the contribution made by the members as shares and deposits. The society was estabilished during the year 2001 with the prime motive of undertaking edu¬cational actitivities to promote education and to generate employment opportunities. Inorder to accomplish all the objectives of the society, we proposed to establish various institutions to popularise quality education among the youth of Mahe & adjacent areas. So far we have established three institu¬ions viz,
1. Mahe Institute of Information Technology-ITC
2. Mahe Co-operative College of Teacher Education
3. Mahe Co-operative College of Higher Education and Technology
Since the society is functioning with Co-operative Principles and according to the Co-operative Act and Rules of Puducherry Government, it is under the control of Co-operative Department.
