Community radio to roll out in Haryana

MUMBAI: Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agriculture University will set up its community radio station in Hissar within an estimated three months time.

With this the number of CRS will increase to 60 in the country.

A Letter of Intent had been issued to the Institute after recommendations of Inter Ministerial Committee and seeking requisite clearances from various Ministries. The Community Radio Station is expected to be operational within three months as per the agreement.

The objective of the CRS is to reach out to the communites, particularly those who are poor, literally challenged farmers and socially culturally underprivileged people. The CRS aims to address issues that concern the community through participatory programmes, and improve the quality of life in general and agricultural activities of the farmers in particular. It will be beneficial to communities surrounding suburban areas of Hissar.

The CRS programs will be based on developmental, agricultural, health, educational, environmental, social welfare, community development and cultural programs.
