Laptops Distribution to College Students in Odisha

Distribution of 15000 Laptops to the College Students 
by Govt. of Odisha free of cost
- Anatomy of Govt. claimed through RTI -

Highlights
  • Govt.  Declaration of 15000 laptops distributed to the College students found false.  As per information provided by Dept. of Higher Education on 26.5.15, only 14923 laptops have been allotted to 30 districts.
  • As per information obtained from OCAC, Bhubaneswar, the invoice Bill produced by  M/s ACER India Pvt. Ltd. Shows distribution of 14976 laptops to different 30 colleges of 30 districts of the state.
  • Total amount of Rs.    30,30,65,038. 00 ( Thirty Crore Thirty Lakh  sixty five thousand thirty eight  rupees)  has been paid  to M/s ACER India Pvt. Ltd.   Against supply of 15000 Laptops @ Rs. 20,343.75 per Laptop. Though full amount paid, but still there is shortage  of supply of 24 laptops  by ACER India Pvt. Ltd. The State Govt.  has kept 77 Laptops  without supplying to the students.
  • Many meritorious + 2 Pass out students have been deprived of  getting this benefit, as  only one college of each district was selected   for distribution of laptop. For example,  as only B.J.B. College was selected,  meritorious students  of  Ramadevi  College  were deprived  to get  benefit.
  • District-wise  or  College-wise  fixation of number of Laptops  by the State Govt.   was also not judicious. For example, B.J.B. College was allotted 2265 laptops, while Ravenshaw Junior ( autonomous) College was allotted 1791 Laptops. F.M. College, Balasore allotted 1224 laptops.
  • Nobody knows  about the criteria  fixed for allotment of Laptops  to different colleges

Details of Distribution of Laptop PCs by Govt.

Just 8 months prior to General Election-2014, the State Govt.  took decision to  provide Laptop  to the  College students  free of cost. Nobody knows about whether Laptop was distributed to the students of different colleges of the state, name of the students, amount spent for procurement of Laptop, procedure followed for procurement etc.  To have an idea about   distribution of laptop to the students, RTI Application was submitted   to the Department of Higher Education, Govt. of Odisha on 24.5.14 ( RTI Application is attached for reference). The PIO did not supply the information. Then 0n 2.8.14, First Appeal was made to the First Appellate Authority (FAA), Dept. of Higher Education to get the information.  The FAA also remained silence and did not dispose the case.  Finding no order from the FAA, I made second appeal to the State Information Commission on 28.1.15 which is pending in the Commission for hearing.

With the objective to extract information from the Department, series of RTI Applications were submitted to the PIO from January to May 2015.  At  last,  in response to RTI Application  submitted on 19.5.15,  the  PIO, Dept. of Higher Education  forwarded my application  to the PIO,  office of Odisha Computer Application Centre ( OCAC), Plot No- N-1/7-D, Acharya Vihar, Bhubaeswar-13.  The PIO has supplied the information on 19.6.15 which is still incomplete.  The details of the information supplied by the PIO are as follows.

A.     In June 2014, the State Govt. decided  to  implement  the scheme of distribution of  Laptops  free of cost  to +2 pass out meritorious students studying  in various  Government/ Government aided  Colleges  as part of State Youth Policy. These  Laptops  will be delivered  at different nodal  colleges  for distribution  through the Principals and/ or  officers  of Department of Higher Education.

B.   In July, 2014,    OCAC released  advertisement  inviting proposals from  Original Equipment Manufacturers  ( OEM)  for supply, delivery, installation and maintenance support  of 15,000 Laptops  for Higher Education Department.

C.    Following bidding procedure as mentioned in RPF for selection of OEM,  M/s ACER India  Pvt. Ltd. Was selected  as L1 bidder  for supply of Laptops. The following is  the Comparative  Chart  of all bidders  quoted  and  present on price  Bid opening  daye with name and address  of each bidder & Their Laptop.
