This topic provides information about Swayam Prabha channel.

SWAYAM Prabha is an initiative of the Ministry of Human Resources Development to provide 32 High Quality Educational Channels through DTH (Direct to Home) across the length and breadth of the country on 24X7 basis.

It has curriculum-based course content covering diverse disciplines. This is primarily aimed at making quality learning resources accessible to remote areas where internet availability is still a challenge.

The DTH channels are using the GSAT-15 satellite for programme telecasts.

Scope of the channels

The SWAYAM PRABHA has new content everyday for at least (4) hours which would be repeated 5 more times in a day, allowing the students to choose the time of their convenience. The channels are uplinked from BISAG, Gandhinagar. The contents are provided by NPTEL, IITs, UGC, CEC, IGNOU, NCERT and NIOS. The INFLIBNET Centre maintains the web portal.

The DTH Channels covers the following:

  1. Higher Education: Curriculum-based course contents at post-graduate and under-graduate level covering diverse disciplines such as arts, science, commerce, performing arts, social sciences and humanities, engineering, technology, law, medicine, agriculture, etc. All courses would be certification-ready in their detailed offering through SWAYAM, the platform being developed for offering MOOCs courses.

I would like to know what are the Eligibility Criteria for becoming Subject Expert? Only the Faculties or anybody outside the realm of teaching, i.e. industry or professional can write script for the chosen subject of their expertise.
If you have any Average Expenditure per New Content, SP DTH Channel, please eMail me on *******@jmi.ac.in


Program is very useful for both students and staff. kindly upgrade more more technical related subjects.
Thank you

Hello sir,
In our country there is very less teacher for Ayurvedic science. So can you please start a channel for Ayurveda or Ayurvedic Science for students of BAMS.
