IIT Bombay has been handed over with the government’s prestigious Aakash tablet deal. Disappointed with the continuous unpleasant struggle between Datawind and IIT Jodhpur over variety of features of the low-cost tablet, a dynamic committee met few days ago and decided to divest IIT Jodhpur, and Professor Prem Kalra, Director of the committee, extremely set sources confirmed.
Now, the HRD ministry will be monitoring the project further closely.
The matter is found to have placed a swirl in the IIT Jodhpur’s Board of Governors, which had a meeting a few days ago to discuss on the same. Concerned with the information on the IIT’s role in the storm on Aakash tablet, the board had requested Prem Kalra to have a presentation and clarify the circumstances. The board had come to a conclusion that it was good to hand over the project back to the Ministry.
Now, the contract for procuring 1,00,000 Aakash tablets is going to be handed over to IIT Bombay.
