Taking the concept of Digital India to another level and reducing the dependency on coaching institutes, professors from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) will be providing coaching classes to engineering aspirants through four DTH channels from January 1.  These channels will be available free of cost through Doordarshan’s Free Dish DTH platform, and the aspirants will only have to secure a Set-Top Box to watch these channels.

The initiative named IIT-PAL (Professor Assisted Learning) will not only reduce dependence on coaching centres but will also reach out to the students who are living in rural areas and cannot afford to pay the fee for expensive crash courses.  “A team of 40 professors from various IITs have compiled 200-hour lectures for each subject covering the entire syllabus of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). There are so many coaching institutes claiming to be providing easy tricks to crack the exam and not every aspirant can afford to join them,” IIT Delhi Director V Ramgopal Rao told reporters here.  “The faculty members will be joined by teachers from various Kendriya Vidyalyas in imparting these lessons to the aspirants and the focus will be more on concepts,” he added. –  Courtesy
