At present there is no concrete proposal to provide the budget tablet ‘Aakash’ to all students within the next five years. However, under the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), a project is being implemented by IIT Bombay to achieve the following deliverables: 

(i) The acquisition of 1,00,000 Low Cost Access cum Computing Devices (LCADs) for teacher empowerment, 

(ii) The Testing of these LCADs and 

(iii) The Hardware & software optimization of LCADs. 

IIT Bombay is engaged in the development of pedagogically efficient multi –lingual educational applications for various levels of education and is making efforts to provide the Aakash tablet with the latest versions of the standard Open Source operating systems such as Android and Linux.
