Ranchi University to set up its CRS

MUMBAI: As a part of its silver jubilee celebration this year in July, Ranchi University (RU) is all set to launch its own community radio station.

Vice-chancellor of the university A A Khan said that they would soon approach the Prasar Bharti for the licence to operate a station shortly so that it could be on the air before the launch of the celebrations.

Ranchi University will be the second in the line to start a community radio in the state. Last year, the Birsa Agriculture University (BAU) launched a community radio Hariali, specially dedicated for farmers.

Infotainment would be the basic objective of the station, where students could also get a lot of information about career opportunities and counseling for personality development. It will serve both as a leisure pursuit as well as information kiosk for the students.

We have recently undertaken an exercise to pick up the talents from different colleges of the university. The selected students will run the bureau under the guidance of professional technical experts,... Khan said.
