Datawind calls IIT Jodhpur's conduct unethical over Aakash tablet
| by Naina Khedekar |
Datawind CEO, Suneet Singh Tuli has gone all public venting his anger on IIT Jodhpur over the Aakash tablet. He even went on to say that the conduct by the institute was ‘unethical’ and ‘hurt the reputation of all IITs.’ Tuli said the ministry has given all support for the project but IIT-Jodhpur hasn’t handled the project properly. IIT’s role was of procuring the tablet while there was no tech input from them in terms of the design or manufacture. HRD Ministry had given IIT-Jodhpur a Rs. 4772 lakh contract for procuring 100,000 Aakash tablets but not more than 600 devices supplied by Datawind were found good enough and the institute rejected 7500 devices calling them defective.
End of the road?
