The Ministry of Human Resource Development will soon distribute tablet PCs in schools across Chhattisgarh so that teachers can record routine details that can be accessed by a central server.

This will enable better and regular assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of a school, which in turn will help the authorities to devise ways to improve educational standards.

Each tablet will cost just under ₹10,000. The scheme is likely to be implemented between July and September, 2017. The model, if successful, could be replicated across the country.
