Last day we'd reported that the government is starting afresh with the Aakash 2 tablets and has decided to hand over responsibility of the tendering process to the Department of Information Technology (DIT). The primary reason behind the switch is believed to be the spat between IIT-Rajasthan and DataWind over the Aakash's specifications issues, which has led to an unprecedented stoppage of supplies. While DataWind managed to get the LC extension till March, IIT-Rajasthan may lose out on the Aakash deal. The government is now reportedly planning to take away procurement responsibility from IIT and hand it over to public sector undertakings.
