Andhra students may get 10,000 Aakash tablets
Zeebiz Bureau

New Delhi: The Andhra Pradesh government has sent a proposal to the Union Human Resource Development Ministry (HRD) for booking 10,000 Aakash tablets. The state government is planning to distribute the much awaited tablet among its students, according to   reports.

The state officials have reportedly planned to distribute the tablet in two phases. In the first phase, students from state universities, engineering and polytechnic colleges will be able to procure the Datawind manufactured tab while the next phase is expected to cater students from private colleges.

Aakash has been in news ever since the Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal unveiled the tablet at a conference in Delhi last year.   

The tablet has already received about 2 million pre-booking orders.

The government also plans to provide the tablet on rent in colleges and university libraries for students who have missed booking the tablet.
