Your Education is Our World

Technology institutes should work to develop low-cost laptops not costing more than $10 for students, according to minister of state for higher education D Purandareswari.

“It is a challenge but we have the potential and the capacity to overcome challenges. Who would have thought Ratan Tata would develop a car for Rs 1 lakh?” said in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

The minister was addressing e-India 2009, the country’s largest information and communication technology (ICT) seminar which began on Tuesday.
