Kerala Taxes recently moved completely to online filing of taxes. To help business owners to efile their taxes, the sales tax department had prepared and released a Microsoft Excel template file(.xls) to be used by the dealers to generate files for filing taxes online. We, at Zyxware, realized that this would effectively force Free Software Users into using Microsoft Office for filing their taxes and took effort into converting this template into Spreadsheet Format(.ods)

You can download the file from the link given below. If you come across bugs or problems with this template please report them as comments to this post and we will try to fix the problems. Also the template has been developed with OpenOffice version 2.4. If you are using an older version please upgrade your OpenOffice and try with a newer one before you report problems.

By converting this template we are demonstrating to the world that Free Software is all about sharing knowledge and helping each other. With this we are once again asserting that the Free Software community, that includes all of us at Zyxware, is willing to work with anybody to further the cause of Free Software and Freedom in general. At Zyxware we have always been true to this conviction and have been doing our part to promote and spread Free Software. We hope that you too will do your part in spreading the goodness of Free Software.

By Kerala IT Policy 2007, Clause 8.4, knowledge generated through public funding should be freely available to the public. So we would believe that the original excel file was already under a Free Software License. We hereby give all derived work under GPLv3.

I hope this will inspire youngsters to take bold steps in trying out their ideas and contributing it to our country, however small their contributions may be.

Hope this software will go a long way in tackling epidemics like chikungunya. It will be a boon to milliions of people like me who are suffering from chikungunya. The main hurdle at the clinical level for epidemics like chikungunya is that no medicines have been identified for treating this disease. Doctors just prescribe pain killers and paracetamol. The need of the hour is a sincere effort at the govt level to do extensive research for the roots of this disease , develop preventives and prevent such outbreaks in future. Such efforts aided with a GIS software like zyxwares’s will go a long way in eradicating these epidemics. Jai (not verified) access_time 20 Aug 2019 - 21:09 Kudos. I appreciate the effort and contribution from the Zyxware Technologies Team. I hope it would be possible to import the data (both demographic & clinical) collected through Electronic Medical Records (EMR’s) and Hospital Information Systems (HIS) database into the above mentioned modules (Health Monitoring System Management Console and Health Monitor GIS/Reporting Interface application), to generate disease patterns/trends, analyse reasons for occurrance, predict possiblity for future outbreaks for prevention etc. Such a feature/effort could help acheive better results in public health administration in India and other developing countries.
