In a conversation with the media, a senior official of the HRD Ministry stated that the HRD Minister held a discussion with the leading cable operators and DTH service providers to ensure that these channels are broadcasted to every household.

The HRD minister further asked them to get involved in this educational reform and guaranteed support in technical issues.

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.
