If problems surrounding the Aakash tablet were not enough to cope with, HRD Minister Kapil Sibals office is now having a tough time tackling enthusiastic inquiries from prospective buyers.

Its learnt that Sibals office is getting calls from all and sundry inquiring about the tablet.

Recently, a Supreme Court lawyer dialled the office of the Minister to find a way to purchase the tablet for his grandson.

The ministry is having to politely turn down all such requests pointing out that not only is the tablet not yet available in the market but also the ministers office was certainly not handling its distribution.
