The report on 'Strengthening Education Management Information System in India', says Around 13.5% of all schools across India now have computer penetration.

 National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA), reveals that Maharashtra leads the nation in providing computer access to its school kids. The study reveals that across the country, computer penetration has gone up since 2003-04, when just 72,000-odd schools (7.68%) in India had computers. The figure has now risen to 1,67,000-plus schools (13.43%), as of 2006-07 .

However, the spread of computer education has been limited to just 6.51% of all primary schools in the country. And except for Delhi, Chandigarh, Kerala, Gujarat, Lakshadweep, Maharashtra, Orissa, Puducherry, Sikkim and Tamil Nadu, the percentage of computer penetration in primary schools is below double digit in the rest of India.
