We have received few queries where people have asked about real specifications for smartphone that will be provided under Kaptan (Captain) Smart Connect Scheme. Kindly note that the specs that we have discussed above are extracted from official website only and should be genuine as per the official website. In case we find any discrepency or officials have something to say on specs then we will surely update this article with original specifications of Smart Connect scheme smartphone. It is going to be a large level scheme where Punjab Government will distribute around 50 lakh 4G smartphones in entire state (if they are elected to power). Few are seeing it as voting politics or clickbait only. Only time will tell whether it all will be a hoax only or will they complete their promise by distributing 50 lakh approx 4G smartphones for free in state (if elected in upcoming Punjab elections). Please stay tuned for latest updates.

UPDATE: 11/29/2016

Tomorrow will be the last date to apply online for Captain Smart Connect scheme in Punjab. As per Kaptan Amrinder Singh, they are going to complete all the formalities within first 100 days of formation of the cabinet. Let we remind you of similar scheme by SAD party who promised to provide free laptops to eligible applicants. This scheme existed in papers only and no steps towards realization were taken. We hope Captain Smart Connect will not become the part of papers only and some concrete actions will be taken towards its implementation.

If Indian National Congress comes into power in Punjab this time then it would be one of the most awaited step which every registered user would want to get completed at the earliest. Kaptan is going to provide 50 lakh 4G smartphones under Kaptaan Smartphone scheme and as per the latest reports, enough number of pieces are still avaialable (around 10 lacs have applied so far) so do hurry and register your entry for Smart Connect scheme under Captain Smart Connect scheme. Do let us know if any help required.

As per the official sources, the registration for Captain Smart Connect scheme will now be opened till 10th December 6:00 PM IST. As per several reports, many lakhs have already applied for free smartphone to be distributed under scheme but still it seems like they haven't crossed the 50 lakh limit yet. In order to avail the maximum benefit out of the scheme, officials might have extended the registration period for another 10 days.

In case you have any doubts or want to get answered to officials directly, then you can reach out through email: "CaptainSmartConnect@Gmail.Com" Seems like giving away such freebies is becoming the new election trend now. We have already seen Uttar Pradesh Government to come up with such initiative already and now AP Governemnt might also be thinking about launching such free smartphone scheme to the eligible students.

Punjab Congress don't want to leave any stone untouched for the upcoming poll season. They have now introduced another youth oriented scheme Har Ghar Captain that aims at providing 1 job per household. It will also focus at eradicating the use of various kinds of drug across the state. You can read complete details through the reference link.
