SC gives go-ahead to computerization of 748 Delhi govt. schools

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has okayed the Delhi Government's tender process for establishing state-of-art computer labs in each of its 748 schools at a cost of Rs one billion with a view to put the students there at par with those sudying in public schools. A SC bench comprising Justice R.C. Lahoti and Justice Ashok Bhan removed all legal hurdles before the State Government in swinging into action on its decision by setting aside a Delhi High Court order which had quashed the tender document inviting bids for the Rs one billion project. The Delhi High Court had held that the State Government by putting the clause that only those firms having a turnover of more than Rs 200 million could participate in the tendering process had acted arbitrarily and shut out small firms.
