Starting the journey on 25 January 2011, Sangsad Television has acquired a position among the top Television channels of Bangladesh. This channel is owned by the Government of Bangladesh. Unlike other TV channels of the country, Sangsad Television works exclusively for Jatiya Sangsad, the National Parliament of Bangladesh.
In the wake of COVID19 outbreak, the Government of Bangladesh has closed all schools across the country.

Students from all over the country can attain these online classes free of cost and continue their education process effectively. The latest class routines are available at http://dshe.gov.bd/.
