Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal presented five lakh tablets to students in government schools on Thursday, saying Haryana was the first state to do so as he launched the e-Adhigam initiative in Rohtak.

These devices have preloaded material, personalized and adaptive learning software, and 2GB of free data. The government plans to provide the device to five lakh kids in grades 10-12. However, it said that Class 11 students will receive them after passing the Class 10 board examinations and qualifying for the next year.

"Previously, students in schools had to carry their books in bags, but starting today, their books will be in this tab." "A target has been set in the New Education Policy to execute the scheme of delivering education by embracing technology across the country, and we are committed to accomplish it by 2025," he stated.

"Today, a major revolution in the education sector has begun." Such a large-scale campaign for children in government schools has never been undertaken in any other state of the country.

No state in the country has ever delivered tablets to five lakh youngsters at the same time. Haryana is the first state to do so. The e-Adhigam project will be a momentous occasion in the education industry. Many more reforms would be implemented in the education sector in the future years," Lal stated, adding that COVID-19 had harmed the education sector and forced schools to shut, but that the tablet had now become the new classroom.

Haryana, according to the Chief Minister, spends "the largest share" of its budget on education. He said that 20,000 crore was spent on education in the current budget alone. He stated that dramatic reforms were being implemented in the school system, and that budget restrictions would not be an obstacle.

Lal stated that the administration will organize two task teams for the education sector. "One task force will work on infrastructure, building, boundary wall, attractiveness, cleanliness, roads, water and toilets, and other necessary school requirements, while the other task team will assure school furniture arrangement, etc." "Within a year, dual benches would be installed in all Haryana schools," he promised.
