Alappuzha: The Alappuzha municipal corporation has come up with a novel idea to enable the education of students without online learning facilities.
It plans to provide television sets to such students by organising a TV challenge.
The corporation has said that residents canbgive a new or an old TV to the local body. The TVs can be handed over during the TV challenge function at the Town Hall between 5am and 10am.
On the same day, the TVs collected thus will be given to those on the corporation’s list of eligible students.
Corporation chairman Illikkal Kunjumon has written to the local cable operators to provide free connection to such students.
The corporation will buy tabs for those students who don’t get a TV, it said.
