- Support for Licensing
CRFC will work closely with Ministry of Information & Broadcasting to enhance coordination and liaisoning with different ministries and departments. It will also create an enabling policy environment by creating support enabling mechanism – employing a toll free landline phone, IVRS and SMS-based services facilitated by an e-Help Desk.
- Capacity Building
CRFC plans to create a pool of facilitators through its comprehensive internship programme. CRFC aims to train 48 interns over a period of two years. The project expects the interns to be familiarized with issues like the Community Radio licensing procedure, DAVP empanelment etc. CRFC would also create multi-lingual supporting material for applicants, searchable database of Community Radio stations, updated toolkit and guide on CR application process and DAVP empanelment
The one of the major objectives of CRFC will be to enhance the outreach of Community Radio itself. This will be achieved by conducting workshops with the ministries and departments of the government of India charged with social welfare in order to promote Community Radio. This will be complemented by multi-media campaigns employing digital and social media. CRFC will bring out regular updates and newsletters to keep you abreast of the recent happenings in the Community Radio domain.
