Community members help us with different types of content for our radio station for three hours daily and we have a bank of 500 hours of content. Community is very much interested to participate in our programmes as it is deeply sensitive to local needs and aspirations. We also have two sponsored programmes and four long-term community-based programmes. We are lunching Green Radio Club from April this year with nominal fee of ` 50 per individual, ` 100 for families and ` 100 for NGO, etc.
The Police Department gives all important announcements regarding traffic control, theft, etc. from our radio station. We involve Ministers of Maharashtra Government to inform various schemes of Government to the community. We invite local NGOs who work against global warming, AIDS awareness, child labour and interview of leaders of Self-Help Groups. In this way we incorporate the community.
Green CRS has helped Shrikant Omkare a blind handicapped boy to have a recognition build up in the society. Being blind, listening to radio was a sole source of his entertainment. Shrikant mentioned that he really loves listening to Green CRS. Shrikant being a active listener of Green CRS, his interview was broadcasted on Green CRS which has helped him in his further educational fund from society.

Signature Programme:
The signature programme of Green CR is Harit Kranti in which Professors from Agricultural Colleges give information to farmers regarding seed varieties, fertiliser dosage, pest control information and various diseases to maximise yield. We also inform farmers about the current market rates for all agricultural products daily at various markets in Maharashtra apart from hourly weather updates and information on new technology and new machinery available from farm machinery industries.

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.
