Free Laptops for Odisha 12th Pass Students 2013-14

Free Laptops for Odisha 12th Pass Students 2013-14 - There is very good news for all the students of Orissa. Naveen Patnaik government in Odisha has decided to distribute free laptops to 12th pass students in Odisha.

Last year Samajwadi Party of Uttar Pradesh came to power by promising distribution of free laptop an tablets to students of Uttar Pradesh. They kept their promise and has already started distribution of laptops and tablets to students. This scheme is very popular among students or you can say young voters. Naveen Patnaik government in Orissa is also trying to cash on in this scheme and in the process has promised free laptop distribution in Orissa for students.

Higher Education Minister Badrinarayan Patra said a committee had been appointed to set a benchmark for selection of the meritorious students.

The free laptop scheme would be launched on August 15 in Bhubaneswar by distributing the gadgets to the shortlisted students of Khurda district.

How can apply for Free Laptops in Odisha?

All eligible students can fill the application form in their schools to get the free laptops. Like previously mentioned by me that priority will be to give away free laptops to poor meritorious students who are girls or belong to tribal or Dalit categories. This category may get extended depending on budget which is allocated for this purpose.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had said free laptops will be provided to bridge the digital divide between students and special focus would be given to girls and students belonging to SC and ST communities.
