The Aakash tablet was launched amidst a lot of fanfare with some touting it as the game changer, while some worried that it may fall trap to the demand – supply problem that a lot of electronics in the country have been facing. Now, a few glaring statistics have come out. It has been reported that a mere 366 units of the Aakash tablet have actually reached students and six months have passed by since its launch. The students had received the Aakash tablets on the 5th of October last year for testing and feedback purposes. IIT Rajasthan had procured a total lot of 6,440 tablets that Datawind had supplied them and this number of 366 tablets was a part of that lot. Only 650 units of the total number had been accepted. According to Kapil Sibal’s statement in the Parliament IIT Rajasthan had ‘rejected rest of the lots as the number of defective LCADs (Aakash tablets) in those lots exceeded the stipulated 5% of devices."
