The lectures would help students to “study from home” especially those who cannot attend online classes or take benefit from Teleschool.

As the schools and colleges are closed again due to increase in coronavirus cases, such project will keep the educational activities regular. Earlier, the Government introduced “study from home” where lectures are delivered on a dedicated PTV channel named “PTV Teleschool”.
