The Haryana government launched its ambitious ‘e-Adhigam’ scheme under which nearly three lakh tablets were distributed to government school students of Classes 10 and 12. These devices come with pre-loaded content along with personalised and adaptive learning software, and 2GB free data.
The government intends to provide the gadget to five lakh students from Classes 10-12. However, it said Class 11 students will get them after they clear the Class 10 board exams and qualify for the succeeding year.
The government will also form two task forces for the education sector — one will work on the infrastructure, buildings, boundary walls, beautification, cleanliness, roads, water, sanitation and other essential requirements of schools while the other will ensure the arrangement of furniture etc.
