About Radio Mewat

Radio Mewat has a clear, lucid vision, ensures community participation by making the community a stake holder in everything that Radio Mewat does. Our programming automatically involves collective, interaction participation. We have established a credible rapport with the community. Using the medium of our programmes, Aaj Ka Mehmaan and Gaon Gaon ki Baat, our reporters visit villages to raise awareness about Radio Mewat, motivating people to participate.
Indeed, Radio Mewat has become a crucial destination for all visitors/officials who visit Mewat. A responsive administration has become a stake holder. It promotes the radio through various forums. We have formed a content committee which networks with the community. We engage continuously with colleges and schools. Word of mouth publicity has created a committed audience. We are working closely with institutions. The SRF Foundation has taken a slot (free of cost) for children of 45 schools. Hriday, an NGO, ran a six-month long anti-tobacco campaign (free of cost). Significantly, the Superintendent of Police uses the radio for important announcements related to traffic control, crime, khap panchayats and other issues that directly concern the community. We have launched a concerted membership drive in Mewat. With the civil society and administration in creative symphony, we are sure of success.

Signature Programme:
Gaon Gaon ki Baat is the signature programme of this CRS. In its simplicity and clarity, it tells an epic narrative of tangible change. This programme enters the heart of the village. It involves rediscovering the unique characteristics of the village, its social and cultural profile, and deeper discussions with local representatives. The village engagement negotiates oral traditions, local history, development paradigms, infrastructure facilities, the panchayat's role and vision, opportunities for the youth. Also, the state of the health sub-centre, anganwadi, number of SHGs, the nearest bank, etc. Significantly, we have completed over 70 episodes. Even while we constantly get invites from the villages that have not been covered.
The idea is to ensure community participation, collective engagement, creative praxis, a big picture vision of active hope. This guarantees an assured audience and 'listenership'. It has decisively helped us create a healthy sense of competitive ethos. The programme is extremely popular and has a committed slot every morning.

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.
