Non-government sector may be allowed to set up Radio stations

Information and broadcasting minister Sushma Swaraj hinted that India is studying the possibility of permitting non-government sector to set up community radio stations.

Speaking at the second Saarc information ministers’ conference, Ms Swaraj said, "We are examining the possibilities of permitting the non-government sectors to set up community radio stations, thereby narrow casting programmes." She said the Indian media scene was kept alive with 52,000 newspapers of different languages, 120 television channels reaching 70 million homes besides the government and private-run radio stations which covered 97 per cent of the Indian population.

While the reach of the print media is limited to 20 per cent of the population, the radio sector made big strides to cover the length and breadth of the country, she said.
