UP govt now wants to give 30,000 tablets to state officials
| by tech2 News Staff |
After messing up the laptop donation drive for students, the Uttar Pradesh government is now toying with the idea of giving 30,000 tablets to its revenue officials to encourage governance in a more organised manner, reports The Times of India.
The Akhilesh Yadav-led government had previously handed out free laptops to about 10,000 to intermediate students in a bid to encourage them to pursue higher studies. However, against a target of more than 15 lakh laptops to be distributed among students passing Class 12, only 79,491 have been given away. Official sources cite frequent changes in the state secondary education department and the dwindling interest of the political leadership as the two main reasons behind the slow pace of the project.
