The government of India has rejected the proposal of $100 laptops from Nicholas Negroponte's one laptop per child (OLPC) project.

The government feels taht there is need for more teachers and better teaching tools. Introducing laptops may affect the creativity, thinking and analytical capabilities of students. The aim of the project OLPC was to provide personal computers to millions of children in countries including Brazil, China, India and Nigeria, as an educational tool. The first working prototype of the laptop was shown in May. Nigeria placed an order of one million of the Linux laptops, although the devices won't go into production until orders for at least five million have been received.
