According to Odisha School Education Program Authority, this syllabus-based student educational program “Radio Pathashala” is going to be broadcast on All India Radio from September 28, every week from Monday to Friday between 10 am to 10:15 am to facilitate the continuous learning of students.
Bhupendra S Poonia, State Project Director, Odisha School Education Program Authority has asked all District Education Officers, all District Project Coordinators, all Block Education Officers to intimate all Headmasters and CRCCs to widely disseminate among the students and parents to listen to the program.
The program will be broadcast from all Radio Stations at the same time and will also be uploaded on DIKSHA platform.
In Unlock 4.0, the Ministry of Home Affairs had allowed to open schools for classes from 9th to 12th students from Sept 21st. Many states have allowed schools to open.
