Even as the government moots for the public sector enterprises for the Aakash tablet project, leading IT company HCL has expressed interest in the ultra low-cost tablet. According to reports, HCL is planning to bid for the Aakash 2 tablets after the government releases an expression of interest for this purpose. It may be recalled that HCL Infosystems was the first company chosen by the HRD ministry to develop the Aakash tablet, then dubbed as the Sakshat. The company, however, lost out on the Aakash deal after it failed to assure the government that it had at least Rs. 600 million in bank guaranteed funds, as then required by the government. Later, contract was given to DataWind.
