The initial plan of the government was to conduct the classes on the national television channel DD Bengla from 16:00 Hours -17:00 Hours. However, few parents and students stated their objection to the timing.
The ABP Ananda channel will be broadcasting classes for students of Class 9-12. The channel head comments on this saying that, “the lessons will be broadcasted for a week starting from April 7 and will be help from 15:00 hours to 16:00 hours.”
