Datawind asks for Made in India for Aakash Tablet

Datawind has asked the Govt. of India to go for a "Made in India" clause to be included for Aakash Tablet. Datawind who is the maker of cheap "Aakash Tablet" that anybody can get for a price of $49.48 said that this would encourage indigenous home production. As the first tender for getting these cheap tablets was won by Datawind, govt. asked for 1 lakh devices.
Datawind CEO Sunit Singh Tuli said as most of the components are already made and available for the Aakash Tablet in India like the software and chips, the govt. should think of marking it as "Made in India".

The wait is still longer to get the Aakash Tablets

As there aredisputes coming up on specific features and quality of tablets between IIT-Rajasthan and Datawind, the wait is seen as far from over. Around 3,000 units of Aakash have not been accepted by IIT-Rajasthan owing to slow processor performance, screen display and not so long battery power.
Aakash tablet 2 is already on its way and it might improve the performance.
