MI&B opens Community Radio India Facebook page

In a bid to establish a direct communication between the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting (MI&B) and various stakeholders of Community Radio fraternity in the country, the ministry has launched a dedicated page on facebook- ‘Community Radio India’.

According to a Press Release from the Ministry today, the  objective of this page is to disseminate community radio information to a wider public and engage with over 134 operating community radio stations of the country and other stakeholders. The page will update the stakeholders on status of licences, screening committee meetings, permission agreements, clearances for new community radio station, consultations and events. This platform would also enable community radio stations to share information about their radio programmes, upcoming events, success stories, photographs and their challenges.

‘Community Radio India’ page also aims to encourage new and aspiring stakeholders of community radio by regularly updating them on CR policy, guidelines and by answering their queries.

This page can be accessed from http://www.facebook.com/communityradioindia .

The scheme has been identified as a core intervention during the XII Five Year Plan and it is expected that the Plan period would see a quantum jump in the number of Community Radio Stations set up in the country.
