  • Gandhinagar : India’s most affordable laptop with a price tag less than that of a Smartphone will be among major attractions at the Digital India Week 2022 which will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Gandhinagar on July 4.

    When ‘affordability’ of computing devices, laptops or smart phones to cater to the needs of millions in ‘digital’ India poses a challenge, a Hyderabad based company will showcase its products including a laptop at an unbelievable price tag of Rs.20,000 and tablets at Rs.5000.

    ‘Catalyzing New India’s Techade’, is the theme of the 2022 version of Digital India Week (DIW). DIW was launched in 2015 with a vision to transform the nation into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. India is getting the Presidency of G20 in December this year, and would be hosting the G20 Summit in 2023, one of the initiatives that the government is keen to be shared globally is India’s leadership in Digital Technologies and its experience in implementing Digital Transformation projects at population scale. 

    The DIW 2022, will have a three days’ long orientation program -“India Stack Knowledge Exchange: Showcasing India Stack and India’s Digital Products & Services”, scheduled on July 07 – 09, 2022. 

    “Our vision is to provide affordable quality computing devices to people. There is no competition here as affordability is the top priority. That is how we could come out with a laptop, All in one, Desk pc’s, Servers, Workstations to suit the pockets of the consumer” says Rajesh Mallampalli, Vice President, Sales of RDP, the Hyderabad based company that will showcase its products.

    The company was was given “Manufacturing of Laptops” award by Government of India, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) for outstanding contribution in promotion
    of electronics last year, introducing easy on pocket computing devices without compromising quality.

    When innovation meets the needs of the masses it becomes inspiration for more innovation. This philosophy is the pillar on which RDP stands- to make best computing devices- for the masses at ‘most affordable’ prices, he says.

    Founded in 2012 by a young entrepreneur Vikram Redlapalli with a dream of making low cost computing a reality, RDP, during the last decade has become a known brand. The company has one million users,
    3500 partners, 35,000 clients and more than 250 active retailers for its range of products that includes desktops, laptops, tablets, thin clients both for personal and business use. Even before the pandemic when everything went online, RDP was dreaming of making computers at a price within the reach of every household in the country, Mallampalli said.

    The ‘Make in India’ initiative of Government of India only encouraged the company in our mission. The demand for affordable quality computing devices has grown exponentially and the company is confident of overcoming supply chain disruptions and fulfilling the expectations of the people, he concluded.
