Community radio in India

This is primarily why community radio stations can be a boon for lower income groups – they provide information without wasting money or time. When they started their radio station in November 2009, Gurgaon Ki Awaaz’s team realised that there were three distinct populations in Gurgaon: The economically weaker migrants, culturally alienated locals and a cosmopolitan crowd. From the very beginning, they chose to cater exclusively to the first two. Their programmes range from career counselling, queries about heath and employment, educational shows to folk music. Anchors venture into the field to record folk songs from the community.
