IT@School Project has launched a Resource Website for 10th Standard students to aid them to learn the new textbooks in mathematics and science with the help of ICT.

Textbook indent system for unaided government school was developed to ensure that there is no shortage of textbooks in schools.  This is an online centralized mechanism for ordering textbooks for unaided schools. Unaided Schools have to register first and then login to order and thereby avoiding delays in the normal supply to government schools. Only recognized schools will have access to the system. After registration the school receives a mail containing their username and password with which they could login and order the textbooks. Various reports could also be generated at the administrator level to recognize the number of books ordered by each school and the books ordered.

In case of Higher Secondary schools, they are provided with username and password in the beginning itself with which they register so as to place the order in time.

Advantages

1. The system is more transparent, fast and effective means of ordering and supply of textbooks
2. Helps in analyzing actual requirement of textbook in schools
3. Reduces the shortage of textbook and ensures that the students receive their textbook on time.
