About Kerala State Lotteries
Kerala State Lotteries is a state-run scheme run by Kerala government. The Nirmal lottery is a weekly lottery whose draw is held on every Friday.
The lottery department was set up in 1967. The idea of the department came from the then Finance Minister of Kerala, the late PK Kunju Sahib, who envisaged revenue from the sale of lotteries as a major source of non-tax revenue for the state and a stable income source for the poor and common people.
Other than Nirmal, Kerala State Lotteries also run draws for other lotteries such as Win-Win (on Mondays), Sthree Sakthi (on Tuesdays), Akshaya (on Wednesdays), Karunya Plus (on Thursdays), Karunya (on Saturdays) and Pournami (on Sundays).
