Views: 438

The students of Mumbai University have recorded lessons from textbooks and broadcasting through FM Radio, so that underprivileged students in and around Kalina can learn lessons through radio.

The Department of Journalism and Communication has given this idea to university students to educate students who are underprivileged. The community radio channel launched on 29 February 2008 by President of India, Pratibha Patil is airing lessons and played out by university students in an entertaining format for the students who cannot afford tuition or have illiterate parents. The community channel has a 20-member team that records the lessons in Hindi, English and Marathi. The 107.8 Mhz channel broadcasts the recorded programme between 7 pm to 9 pm. The depart has also converted all the textbooks of the state board syllabus from Stds. V to X.
