Four major companies including the likes of Acer and HP had presented their tender to the State Electronic Development Corporation Limited for the distribution of ordered laptops. The technical bidding had been initiated when the Shimla MLA Suresh Bhardwaj and Leader of Opposition of the state PK Dhumal raised the issue of outdated models being distributed. Both demanded that the government procured latest models with updated specifications to be provided to the meritorious students and not an outdated award for their hard work. This resulted in quick action and after scrutinizing all the latest specification according to scheme budget, a tender for 10000 laptops was opened.
After completion of the technical bidding on 29th July 2016, the next step in the procurement of the laptops is financial bidding but this process is taking some time. After 4 companies that participated in the technical bidding, a financial bidding for settling on the best deal for the 10,000 laptops was supposed to be initiated immediately. It seems like the government is facing some issue with this as there have been no updates about the process yet.

Under the scheme that was initiated in 2012-13 by then Chief Minister PK Dhumal, 4000 candidates were awarded the laptops initially. The numbers gradually rose with the formation of the Virbhadra headed congress government that was formed in 2012 and 5000 laptops were distributed to meritorious candidates. 2014-15 saw an even higher amount of students benefiting from this scheme, where 7500 laptops were distributed by the state government on the occasion of Himachal Day, 15th April.
