Listen and learn

Published: Thursday 15 August 1996

To facilitate development and training in rural areas, the Indian Space Research Organisation is starting the 'Jhabua Development Communications Project' in Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh. The project, a forerunner to the gramsat -- a satellite that will solely cater to the needs of the rural population -- will broadcast programmes for rural development and education through 150 direct receiving terminals and 12 talk-back terminals. The project, which will be on for two years, will beam both live and pre-recorded programmes through the INSAT-2C.
