Andhra Pradesh government Cashless Smartphone Scheme – AP Free Mobile Phone Scheme launched by CM Chandrababu Naidu | Andhra Free Smartphone Yojana for BPL Students – Details of Applying & Registration Process Explained
PM Narendra Modi is giving focus on cashless transactions to make India a better economy. Cashless transactions are fast,efficient and eco friendly. However the user must possess a Smartphone or computer to make use of this facility. It seems that Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. N. Chandrababu Naidu agrees with PM’s thought as he is going to launch a free smartphone scheme for students in Andhra Pradesh (AP). This free mobile scheme in Andhra will be valid for only poor students i.e. students that belong to the BPL category.
There are many young, intelligent students in the state who currently are unable to live up to their potential due to their poverty. Due to lack of resources, such students often find themselves lagging behind. It is the job of our government to make sure every such student is given help. Providing free smartphones to the BPL students of Andhra Pradesh is an appreciable step. These phones will keep them connected to the outer world and they can gain knowledge by connecting to internet.
