In the XI Plan, under NMEICT, there is a provision for providing 50 percent subsidy to colleges and universities for procuring computing devices like 'Aakash' as per their requirements.

The colleges and universities could then issue these devices to financially weak students from the library on the pattern of the Book Bank Scheme. Thus, the individual subsidy to poor students like SC, ST and OBC for buying Aakash tablets may not be needed.
