{Extract}

The NEU PC Plus Programme lets students and persons with disabilities own a new computer at a discount of up to 75 per cent, bundled with three years of free broadband access.

From September, the maximum monthly household income threshold for one to qualify for this programme will be raised from S$3,000 to S$3,400.

The per-capita income cap for low-income households will be raised to S$900 (from S$800), or S$1,125 (from S$875) if there is a family member with disabilities.

This means paying as little as S$239 for a desktop or S$248 for a laptop.

Application for the scheme will also be streamlined so that special education students already on financial assistance will automatically qualify for a higher subsidy.

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering
    issues with your blog. It appears like some
    of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and
    let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thank you
