Further he added, “This year, 16,944 students have scored star marks and bank details of 16,648 have already been collected and we plan to roll out the scheme by depositing the money on September 12. We will need Rs 33-34 crore for this scheme”.
He also added that the state government does not install any of the latest application software such as Microsoft Windows in the computers, and as such most of the students end up changing their laptops. Mr Sarma said that the Government plans to roll out the money for the scheme on 12th September citing that a total of 33-34 crores will be required for the same.
