Not keen on allowing news on private FM stations due to security risk: Government 13.2.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Allowing private FM radio stations, including community radios, to broadcast news could pose a "possible security risk" and may be "exploited" by foreign radical outfits to broadcast fabricated or radical views, government has told the Supreme Court. Opposing a plea seeking direction for allowing news on private radio stations, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has said there is no mechanism to monitor the contents of news bulletins of every such station and it has to be ensured that community radios are not used as a tool by vested interests. An affidavit, filed by the Ministry in pursuance to notice issued by a bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khehar, said community radio stations also air programmes involving chats with NRIs and the local population settled abroad. "These stations may be exploited by foreign radical organisations to broadcast fabricated/radical views of some of these NRIs, as due to paucity of funds, the radio stations would not be able to afford authentic news sources," ...

Tuning in to unheard voices 6.2.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Over three hundred higher primary schools in Heggadadevanakote taluk of Mysuru district witnessed a unique classroom session for about a year from November 2014 to November 2015. Radio sets replaced Maths teachers from 12 noon to 12.30 pm for three days every week. "This 180-episode interactive series, known as 'Lekkada Katte', not only made Maths interesting for kids through its innovative approach to the subject, but also proved useful for schools that don't have a trained Maths teacher," says Juditha, a teacher at Bidarahalli Government Upgraded Higher Primary School. This is one of the many popular programmes broadcast by Janadhwani, a community radio (CR) station based in Saragur in the taluk. The radio station was launched in 2012 with an objective to enable people through timely access to information and active participation in the development process. The right wavelength "Understanding our people and their information needs is key to running a CR successfully," says Shivakumar, station manager ...

Ministry giving CR licenses to govt bodies, say civil society groups 29.1.2017 DNA: India
Civil society groups and organisations operating the country's community radio sector are wary of the government's apparent interest in roping in more government bodies to run community radio stations. The information and broadcasting (I&B) ministry has recently come up with a set of revised policy guidelines for community radio stations in India. The guidelines state that community radio stations can't air political news but can broadcast news and current affairs from the state-owned All India Radio (AIR), among other amendments. Sources say the ministry is contemplating inviting more government bodies to apply for community radio station licenses. The guidelines, however, have failed to impress some of the prominent civil society groups long associated with the community radio sector, who fear losing out to government bodies in bagging community radio station license. "Even though there are no official papers on this, the government is giving out community radio licenses to district rural development ...
