Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry of India has rejected Nicholas Negroponte's offer of $100 laptops for schoolchildren. The Ministry is planning to make laptops at $10 for schoolchildren.
The Ministry has already two designs from engineering students of Vellore Institute of Technology and a researcher from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. The ministry wants theChandigarh based PSU, Semiconductor Complex, to get involved in the fabrication of laptops. The laptop would be made on single board, so that it would be easy to find fault and rectify it. According to ministry sources, the ministry is hoping that the cost of laptop would come to $10.
