It has been barely a week since the new Minister of Information & Broadcasting has taken charge and the action has already begun. The community radio station would be functioning at Wayanad Social Service Society, Mananthvady in Kerala as the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) has given permission for establishing, maintaining and operating a Community Radio Station (CRS) namely ‘Community Radio Mattoli’. The process of establishing the service is already in motion.

The Letter of Intent (LOI) had been issued to the institute following 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 Ministry encourages setting up the Community Radio Stations that aim at the socio- economic empowerment of tribals, women, small or marginal farmers in the area of operation through participatory or sustainable development means aimed at sustainable as well as integral development.
