This initiative, set to be implemented in the next academic session, positions NDMC as the first municipal body in Delhi to adopt such a modern approach to education.


Key Features of the NDMC Tablet-Based Education Initiative

  • Exclusive Educational Content on Tablets: The tablets provided by NDMC will be dedicated solely to educational purposes. They will contain relevant study material and videos as per the teacher’s command. NDMC has prepared individual videos for each chapter to facilitate this new mode of learning.

  • Successful Pilot Project: NDMC member Kuljeet Chahal, along with Vishakha Sailani, announced in a joint press conference with Satish Upadhyay that as a pilot project, NDMC had already distributed 811 tablets in four schools. Following the success of this trial, NDMC plans to distribute 8138 tablets to students from classes 9 to 12 in the academic year 2024-25.


  • Budget Allocation: NDMC will bear the cost of approximately INR 24.72 crores for this project. The tablets will be purchased through the Government e-Marketplace (GeM) portal.
  • Provision for Teachers: In addition to students, 628 tablets will be distributed to teachers, ensuring that educators are equipped with the necessary digital tools to facilitate this new mode of learning.


  • First of Its Kind in Delhi NCR: NDMC will become the first municipal body in the Delhi NCR region to implement tablet-based learning for students from classes 9 to 12.
