MIB OneWorld Webinar

Community Radio (CR) is an important third tier in radio broadcasting, distinct from public service and commercial media. In the last few years, this sector has been growing slowly but effectively in India. Community Radio Stations (CRS) are essentially low power radio stations which are meant to be set up and operated by the local communities. CRS permissions in India are granted to educational institutions, agricultural institutions and civil society organizations that are not-for-profit organisations.

On behalf of the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Government of India, OneWorld Foundation India (OneWorld) is organising a series of webinars on the following themes:

    Community Radio Awareness for Prospective Community Radio Applicants
    Key objectives:
  • To generate awareness amongst the civil society, potential applicants, government departments and stakeholders.
  • To propagate and demystify the CR policy and its processes.
  • To motivate the participants and other eligible civil society organisations to apply for permission to operate CR Stations.
  • To explain and demonstrate the application/permission process and facilitate eligible applicants to submit application.
  • To provide an overview on basic principles of CRS, ownership, process of capacity building, content generation, technology, management, and sustainability of CR station.
  • To demonstrate CR application process, especially through CR online portal.
