Explore ways to reduce the daily burden of carrying books to school for children using technology

Inadequate Progress

E-Basta, an app launched by the BJP government, is an app designed to reduce the burden of school bag of students and provide ease of access from anywhere. More than 1500 school level books are available on E-Basta.

Only 20% of schools in India have access to a computer, according to a Pratham report published in 2016. The BJP government has allocated Rs. 311 crores for Computer Aided Learning during the 2016-17.

No framework has been published by the BJP government to integrate the app (E-basta) with the existing system in the absence of which the promise cannot be fulfilled. Therefore the performance against this promise has been classified as “Inadequate Progress”.
