Monthly Lecture Programmes 

The Kerala State Planning Board has initiated a series of lectures for intellectual discourse on various subjects relevant to the development and welfare of the State by prominent personalities. The talk, which will be conducted in association with reputed institutions, will be held at a suitable venue in Thiruvananthapuram. It is usually of an hour’s duration followed by an interactive session, where eminent people from the city as well as students and members of the general public are invited to attend. The lectures will be put on our website and later, at the end of the year, published in the form of a book. The lectures on various topics held during the previous months had evoked much enthusiasm and open discussion.
