“We have technical limitations for arrangements in a large number of schools for students to hear the live address of the prime minister from New Delhi. However, we would make arrangements in 38 schools across Tripura,” Education Minister (Higher and School Education) Tapan Chakraborty told IANS.

The CBSE has requested schools to make arrangements for the event between 2.30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Teacher’s Day (Sep 5).

The CBSE message also said the prime minister would interact with school children in person in Delhi and through satellite link at the National Informatics Centres in Leh (Ladakh), Port Blair (Andaman and Nicobar), Silchar (Assam), Imphal (Manipur), Bhuj (Gujarat), Dantewada (Chhattisgarh) and Thiruvannamalai (Tamil Nadu).
