Radio programmes will be useful, such students and the other students can also know the various events around the world through the programmes apart from text books. But, many of the schools did not get the radio devices so far and some of the teachers are not allocated time to the pupil to hear the programmes.
The programme commenced 36 days back and headmasters of 105 schools did not get the device. The scheme was introduced to mould the people in the tender age by transmitting riddles in Telugu language, proverbs, adages and stories on moral values.
The lessons in text books will also be transmitted in a simple language with clarity and straightforwardness.
