The MHRD is putting in efforts to introduce IIT Pal which is a preparation website and app that will provide a bank of previous entrance examination questions. This is being introduced in order to reduce the dependence of students on coaching institutes.
The HRD Ministry has roped in a bunch of other universities such as Kashmir University, IGNOU, Punjabi University and other leading institutions to prepare the content for the other DTH channels.
The official added although a lot of content is in English, however, the ministry is working to provide the content in Hindi and other regional languages as well. The official further added that the channels would also present animated content for children.
