A dedicated page on community radio on Facebook was launched by the Indian Ministry of Information and Broadcasting today.

The idea behind the launch is to establish direct communication between the Ministry and the community radio fraternity of the country.

Indian govt puts community radio on Facebook

The objective of the page is to disseminate community radio information to the public and engage with over 134 operating community radio stations in the country. The page will update the status of licences, screening committee meetings, permission agreements, clearances for new community radio station, consultations and events. Community radio stations across the country can share information about their radio programmes, upcoming events, success stories, photographs and their challenges in the page.

The page also aims in encouraging new and aspiring interest holders of community radio by regularly updating them on CR policy, guidelines and by answering their queries.

‘Facebook’s Timeline feature will highlight the history of the community radio movement in India. A host of key documents related to policies can be viewed on the page. Frequently asked questions (FAQs), relevant documents and photo albums of key events will be a highlight of the page.
The government aims to make a quantum leap in the number of community radio stations across the country with the launch of this page.
