The Department of Space has agreed to allot two transponders on a GSAT series satellite for this ambitious project, while Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) have been signed with many institutions which will provide lessons and content that will be beamed on these channels.

“The government is focusing on using space technology to expand the reach of high quality education. Through the 32 DTH channels the aim is to ensure that live classrooms can be transmitted from ten ‘Teaching Ends’ out of which six will be IITs located in Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Kharagpur, Kanpur and Guwahati,” a senior official told PTI.
