Technical Education in Tamilnadu plays a vital role in disseminating knowledge relating to engineering education. It has four technical universities, more than 6 deemed universities, more than 200 engineering colleges and 175 polytechnic  Colleges which are situated all parts of Tamilnadu. Especially the Polytechnic Colleges rendering services at the entry level of technical education and moulded the young Indians in the technological fields. In these institutions, knowledge centres
are occupying the key role in imparting knowledge in the minds of faculty members, student community and other academic community.

The knowledge disseminated to the user community in polytechnic college not healthy as we are anticipating. Hence this paper aimed to develop a healthy trend in dissemination by way of Grid computing i.e. make all the resources available in one place in a electronic form with a motive to sharing of resources among the polytechnic colleges through online.

The paper discussed main Objectives like Maximise the use of knowledge centre resources, Make the perfection in knowledge dissemination, Standardise the operations of knowledge centres and Meet the needs of users by resources available in the all the polytechnic colleges, Avoid duplication in huge investment. Also it discusses about how we can achieve that, Modes to implement this scheme, Functional requirement of each institution.
