According to KP Education Secretary Ashfaq Ahmed, the province will provide 23,000 iPads to deserving students and teachers. He also revealed that the free tablet initiative will cost Rs1 billion.
According to Education Secretary KP Ashfaq Ahmed, the entire project will cost Rs. 1 billion and will be formally launched once the provincial government allocates the necessary funds.
