Lectures of teachers of the Department of Education were broadcast in that program. On Sunday, a program was broadcast for the teachers, in which the guide was given what things should be kept in mind while studying. Retired Director of All India Radio Dr. Jitendra Udhampuri said that this was the program of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. It was telecast under the supervision of Dr. Jitendra Udhampuri, Dr. KC Dubey, Chuni Lal Sharma, RS Hariyanvi. The presentation was of All India Radio. Later the broadcast stopped for any reason.
