I&B Ministry to plan way forward for community radio

MUMBAI: Though the sixth Community Radio Sammelan was democratic and considerate with the forum being open to the CR stations; no road map was created for the CR stations to follow. But, the ministry will now connect with its stakeholders and a few radio stations to plan the way forward.

According to sources, the information and broadcasting ministry, CR stakeholders and a few radio stations will meet in Delhi sometime tomorrow (30 March 2016).

The ministry is likely to review the progress of the CR stations and plan the way forward. The meeting might also touch on issues that have been haunting CR stations.

We tried contacting I & B ministry joint secretary R Jaya, but she remained unavailable for comment.
