A group of Community Radios operating in different states of India will meet on August 2 and 3 at Prasar Bharati Training Centre, Bhubaneswar, Odisha to share their experiences.

They will aim to build a strong perspective for bringing social change by helping people assert their rights and reducing their vulnerabilities.

The event is being organised by Radio Namaskar - the first Community Radio of Odisha, whose objective is to make common people better informed and more active participants of the community development process.

It will also feature an exhibition of best practices of Community Radios from different states, which will be open to the public.

A book capturing these best practices and the learnings and experiences of the Community Radios will also be released at the event.

Community Radio Stations typically broadcast in FM band with low power transmitters restricting its coverage to the local community within approximately 10 KM.

There are 206 operational CRS at present in India.
