The Directorate of Education (DOE) in Goa has submitted a revised Cyber Student Scheme to the state government. for approval. Laptops given to the students of class 11th under this scheme will no longer be the property of the students. Rather these laptops are now the property of the schools where the students have enrolled. Now those student beneficiaries who have got laptops under free laptop scheme in Goa will have to return the laptop to the schools on completion of school education.
Goa Revised Cyber Student Scheme 2021 is currently awaiting approval from the state government. This revised free laptop scheme will save government money spent on recurring expenses of supplying computers to every new batch as the laptops can be reused by the next batch of students.
During his last stint as chief minister, Manohar Parrikar had announced that the cyber scheme was being revised as students were misusing their laptops. Some students were selling laptops online which were received under the free laptop scheme.
Goa Revised Cyber Student Scheme 2021
Cyberage scheme in Goa was launched in the financial year 2002 by Manohar Parrikar during his first term. This was the first such scheme across the country where laptops were being provided absolutely free of cost to the students of higher secondary schools and vocational colleges. Later this scheme was upgraded to provide laptops to the students. As of now, all the students of class XI are entitled to get a free laptop. But it is proposed that the students of class XI of the academic year 2021 will get laptops under the revised Cyber Student Scheme.
Implementation of Goa Free Laptop Scheme 2021
The implementation of the new free laptop scheme may take some time as the various revised scheme details are yet to be finalised. This revised Cyberage Scheme 2021 will include provisions for liability of students if the laptop provided to them by the schools is damaged while in possession of the students.
Under the current Cyberage scheme, the laptop belongs to the students only from the time it is allotted to the students, but it cannot be used by the students for any commercial purpose in the initial years.
Free Laptop Scheme 2021 will be applicable for all the 11th class students of every stream either Arts or Science or Commerce. All the candidates who want to apply for cyber scheme to get free laptop, they have to apply in the prescribed proforma which will be released later.
