About KVK Paravara CR

While designing the format of the programme every member of the rural community is considered to maximize benefits to the rural population. Regular feedback of the community is also taken to develop need-based programmes. Out of two hours, one hour programme is on agriculture and one hour programme is equally distributed for health, education, rural development and local culture.
A needs assessment survey was carried out based on which programme schedule and format has been developed. Local youths, working on freelance basis, were trained through specially developed courses by KVK to develop the content for CRS. Each representative covers 25-30 villages. These CRS representatives, also working as announcers, are trained such that they are conducting interviews on all the subjects and issues related to the community. KVK has also developed interactive phone-in-live programmes and discussion oriented programmes engaging the local community.

Signature Programme:
Out of 60 minutes agriculture programme, 30 minutes programme is Krishi Vani programme where agriculture technology and success stories developed by KVK and other line departments are the focus. Another 30 minutes programme is reserved for live interactive and dramatic programme on agriculture. Special programme like Hello Yashwant (successful farmers), Hello Scientist, serial discussion on particular theme/concepts, panel discussion on recent/current issues, weekly review of agriculture activities and agriculture technology dissemination through local culture are being developed. All these formats help us develop more interesting programmes.

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.
