INSIGHT into Community Radio in Odisha

VV Correspondent Abhishek Dash reports from Dalipathna, Nuapada district, Odisha explaining how radio is one of the best mediums for villagers to gain insight into what government schemes are available and what their entitlements are.   Purna Chandra Banchoor a resident informs Abhishek, “There is an organisation called ‘Chalo Chalo’ in Nuapada district. They are broadcasting a programme called ‘Mor Tunde Mor Katha’ through Bhawanipatna Radio Station…These programmes are about local problems…in our Koshali dialect.  They are discussing about MGNRGA, Right to Education, budget, ICDS and other programmes of the government.”   Our Correspondent explains how rural people are unaware about government programmes as information is not readily available to them in their language. However, through radio rural people get access to this knowledge.   Watch more videos about community projects by clicking on this link.   Written by Manjinder Singh Sidhu   Related Link.
