Signature Programme:
Pathra Prabhanda is our signature programme where in we receive letters from the listeners giving us feedback on the programmes broadcast, suggestions for improvement and local governance issues that they feel need to be addressed. A daily programme it gives an insight into people's likes and dislikes, day to day issues that need attention and a chance for us to improve. Several local issues of the people have been solved as a result of discussions over radio. Letters received on finding a solution for issues faced by adolescents which was broadcast on Namma Dhwani has had a positive impact with a doctor who for the last six months has been giving special consultancies to adolescents on a daily basis.

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.
