The tablets are equipped with educational content, personalized educational software, adaptive and contextual learning as well as 2GB of data for free. The students who received tablets were from several government schools in the classes of the 12th and 10th grades. The plan is deemed ambitious because of its huge cost and impact on the entire population. In the initial phase of distribution, Haryana’s state government has decided to set a goal of providing tablets to five lakh students in the 12th and 10th grades in Haryana.
While the initial intention was to give tablets to students in students in classes 12 and 10 The government has now announced that students in class 11 will also get the tablets for free after they have passed the board exams for Class 10 and are eligible for the following year. Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said following the launch of the e-Adhigam program on the campus of Maharishi Dayanand University in Rohtak, “From next year, all classes from 9-12 will be covered”.
