Haryana will set an example once again for the states across the country under the able leadership of Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal. Taking forward Prime Minister, Sh. Narendra Modi’s ‘Digital India’ campaign under the visionary leadership of Chief Minister, Haryana Government is going to provide tablets and free data to 5 lakh students studying in government schools. This ambitious scheme of the State Government has been named as e-learning (Advance Digital Haryana Initiative of Government with Adaptive Modules). The tablet distribution function will be held on May 5, 2022 at the Tagore Auditorium of Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak by the Chief Minister. During this, these tablets will be given to the students of government schools of Rohtak city. This tablet distribution function will also start on this day in 119 blocks of the state. In other districts, ministers, MPs, MLAs, other guests, along with the Deputy Commissioner and district administration will distribute tablets on the same day.

The Chief Minister said that those tablets and data are tools for the students which will help them to acquire the skills of 21st century and open new opportunities at national and international level. Through e-Learning, a student of Haryana will also become a global student. He said that during Covid, the parents did not have any resource to get the child online. Today the government is going to fill this gap through e-Learning. This ambitious scheme will prove to be an effective step towards online education for most of the students studying in government schools, especially those students who are unable to buy devices like smartphones and tablets.
