The Uttar Pradesh cabinet on Tuesday gave its approval to the distribution of free tablets and smartphones among students pursuing higher studies. The scheme will put a burden of ₹3,000 crore on the state exchequer, a government statement said.

The cabinet also approved ₹37.35 lakh for the installation of a statue of former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee at the Circuit House in Kanpur.

The CM has been authorised to make any amendments to resolve practical difficulties in the scheme.

The statement said the decision was taken keeping in view the coronavirus pandemic as classes are being held online.

This will help students complete their courses successfully, the statement said.
