Accordingly, the programme will be carried out using separate television channels, for each grade.
The government is expected to spend Rs.24 million for the programme.
Speaking to media in Kandy Minister of Mass Media Keheliya Rambukwella said concerns have arisen pertaining to programmes conducted through mobile phones with data charges and signal issues.
