New Delhi: The government has allowed its employees to purchase iPads by availing of computer advances.


In an office memorandum, the Department of Expenditure under the finance ministry said it has received requests seeking clarification on whether the iPad comes under the definition of a personal computer for the purpose of grant of computer advance.

”It has been decided that an official can also purchase an iPad by availing computer advance subject to other conditions…,” the department said.

The department had in October 2016 amended the rules according to which all government employees were made eligible for a personal computer advance of Rs 50,000 or the actual price of the personal computer, whichever is lower.
