Kerala State Lotteries is a lottery program run by the Government of Kerala. Established in 1967, under the lottery department of the Government of Kerala, it is the first of its kind in India.
In 1967 all private lotteries were banned and the Government of Kerala started the Kerala State Lotteries. The idea behind the setup of the new department was from the then Finance Minister of the state, P. K. Kunju Sahib. The objectives of starting the program were to provide employment to people and supplement government finance without disturbing the public.
The department soon became a model for other states in India. Soon many other states jumped into the bandwagon by starting their own lotteries.
