PM eVidya is a unique and innovative venture by the Ministry of Education, Government of India to facilitate multi-mode access to digital/online teaching-learning contents of various types among students and teachers. The uniqueness of the PM e-Vidya lies with its comprehensive accessibility for all as it caters the education content to all with its multi-mode set-up of remote learning platforms including internet, radio, community radio, podcast, and TV.
One of the major initiatives of PM eVidya is 12 eVidya TV Channels based on the line of One Class-One Channel for class 1 to 12 to air educational content related to the respective classes. 12 eVidya DTH channels are especially useful for the learners of those remote areas where stable internet is not available. These channels telecast curriculum based educational contents developed by NCERT and other agencies such as CBSE, KVS, NIOS, Rotary, etc. The video contents have been developed in both Hindi and English medium. These video contents are superimposed with QR codes, which, if scanned using DIKSHA mobile app will take the users to the same content on DIKSHA portal.
The SWAYAM PRABHA is a group of 34 DTH channels devoted to telecasting of high-quality educational programmes on 24X7 basis using the GSAT-15 satellite.
