Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan voiced expressing about laptop distribution in the Kerala State. He said on Monday; the state government would distribute laptops to 45,313 children belonging to scheduled caste/scheduled tribes under the Vidyakiranam project initiated for online learning.
This is the first phase of the laptop distribution, and later subsequent steps would be proposed to provide laptops to around 3.5 lac ST/SC students in classes from 1 to 9 in Kerala state. The CM inaugurated the project after distributing the first laptop to a fifth class student from GHS Vazhamuttam School in Thiruvananthpuram.
Later, He came up with a tweet where he mentioned, “ Inaugurated the distribution of free laptop for all SC/ST students belongs to classes 1 to 12 as part of the Vidyakiranam project. The project will benefit 45,313 students, and INR 81.56 crore has been allotted for the good cause. The laptops are being offered to the first phase for those available in the Vidyashree project of KSDFE-kudumbasree. The distribution process will complete in November.
The Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan said, “ Such project for the ST/SC students was being introduced for the first time in the nation”. The project will help to reduce the effect called digital segregation as well.
The laptops have loaded with Kites’ free software application and hold a three-year warranty. Eligible candidates may request the equipment over the Sampoorna portal, and approved students will receive such equipment at their school. For this, schools and parents need to have an agreement where the cost (Rs 18,000 per laptop including tax) of the laptop would be mentioned.
