DC*Suite (District Collectorate Suite) is an integrated suite of applications for the District Collectorate. DC*Suite is based on an integrated solution architecture covering all functional areas and activities in the Collectorate. This is a web based open source application under LAMP platform. The Open source version of DC*Suite is first implemented in District Collectorate, Kannur.

The back bone of this system is the work-flow based File Movement. From a Tapal to the File and upto the disposal of the File, the entire flow is handled through the system. The functional areas identified includes Workflow based File Management System, MLA’s Special Development Fund, Revenue Recovery Management etc. Generally priority is given for areas where common people interact with the Collectorate or Government. Citizen services delivery through KIOSK , SMS and Internet are facilitated in the project.

The entire work of the District Collectorate, and thereby the files, can be classified into various functional areas. DC*Suite is designed in such a way that, the file can be categorized as falling under a specific functional area by a single mouse click. Once this is done, the further file processing is automatically guided by the System. This makes DC*Suite the best suited work-flow based system for the District Collectorates.

As a value addition to DC*Suite, extended applications such as Taluk Suite and eHajar are also operational in Kannur District.
