Govt allows community radio in Mananthvady-Kerala; to launch in three months

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.

Wayanad Social Service Society was established in 1974 with an aim to conduct, manage, promote, maintain, equip, administer and coordinate social welfare centres, social training centres, technical schools, social institutes, dispensaries, hospitals, clubs, recreational centers, reading rooms, to give practical and technical knowledge to people, and to conduct cooperative societies, marketing organisations, housing projects, plantation, animal husbandry, agricultural development and training projects, and other activities conducive to the realisation of the objects.
