In enhancing the students studying part, the Government is planning to introduce one standard one channel plan. The lockdown in India has adversely collapsed all the operations including schools, colleges, and workplaces with unanticipated setbacks.
On behalf of the students who are facing hard times in academics due to the lockdown that has been imposed to restrict the spread of novel coronavirus, the Government has widened its vision with a broad plan.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) has announced to launch one Standard, one channel plan. As the plan suggests, there will be one channel for each standard.
A senior official of the government has confirmed the following news, “The department of school education and literacy may anchor these 12 channels with appropriate content for every class. The expertise of agencies like the NCERT and the CBSE may be used to develop content and run these channels.”
12 Channels To Be Broadcasted From Standard One To Standard Twelve
The social distancing had become a must to stop the spreading of the COVID-19 in schools and colleges and so conducting the classes online has become a temporary solution, for now, to move forward in academic activities. The official pointed out that using the Internet cant help us reach everywhere, and this has made the HRD ministry turn its ideas towards radio and television.
Another great leap is that the ministry is actively planning to start 12 DTH channels, where one channel will be dedicated to each standard. On these channels, appropriate content in different languages will be broadcasted to the students through TVs. Adding to this, the channels will be broadcasting free of cost.
There are similar plans to carry on higher education studies as well. They are also focusing to extend with the help of All India Radio to broadcast academic content.
In an interview, Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had also asked the students to take up self-study and look for the assistance of available digital studying modes, such as SWAYAM, Dikshafrom exams point of view. Also, there have been arrangements made for broadcasting the content through SWAYAM Prabha TV.
