About Apna Radio

The programmes are designed in such a way that encourages community participation. Since phone-in is an easy medium to connect and ensure community participation, members from the community representing students, staff, villagers, farmers, women, children, are constantly part of the programming content.
The deliberations are made in simple and local language targeting all the age groups. This creates a continued interest to the listeners of the Aapno Radio Banasthali. The community members can also very easily become producers of content because we encourage community members to talk in their own language and dialect.
Banasthali Vidyapith has a strong history of community service and a number of people from the villages are engaged with the University in various forms of employment and jobs. The community comes to the radio station to express themselves.
We organize radio production workshops for the community members to train in radio production and presentation techniques. More than 100 village volunteers have been trained so far. These volunteers are working as community anchors and RJs. There are many radio programmes in which the local artists and singers from the community, get chance to perform their performances. Support from the DST has also helped us to build this momentum among the community members.

Signature Programme:
Radio Banasthali is the voice that knits together people. Gaon-Gaon Dhani-Dhani is our signature programme. Our volunteers reach the community and interview community members regarding developmental and administrative problems that they face in daily life. At the same time we also interview the Sarpanch (Panchayat head) about the issues raised by the community to make the Panchayat and administration more accountable. The programme is in local language that motivates the people to express their problems freely.

Community media is any form of media that is created and controlled by a community, either a geographic community or a community of identity or interest. However, if the fundamental premise of the media is to engage those groups that are categorically excluded and marginalized from the media-making process, it will be included on this website, even if it is not explicitly created and controlled by the community.
