My Home, My PC Program

This Thursday, the Malaysian Indian Technology and Innovation Bureau or MITIB, will launch a program to increase Personal Computer (PC) ownership among Indian families in particular, and Malaysians at large. MITIB, a non-governmental organization initiated by the MIC, in collaboration with Hewlett Packard (HP), will launch this social responsibility program in conjunction with the Deepavali carnival in KL Sentral. Once launched, PCs from as low as RM999 will be available for sale, with 12 months interest-free installments even.

Putera MIC has worked with MITIB closely since the conception of this 'My Home, My PC' program. We feel that encouraging home PC ownership, especially among middle and lower class Indian families, will allow them to get a stronghold in the information technology arena. We sincerely hope Indians will make use of this opportunity. I congratulate MITIB on this remarkable program.
