About Tilonia Community Radio

In order to ensure community participation, we talk to the community in their own dialect and culture. We use songs and short plays as a medium to spread awareness about various schemes and to put forward the problems faced by the people. We invite people from local community and nearby villages to come and share their experiences with others. We take excerpts from the gram-sabha meetings, women groups and other organisations of the area and discuss about their issues on air sometimes through the means of an interview. We also try to gather information from various Government and non-government organisations (NGOs) and share it with the general public.

Signature Programme:
Tilonia radio is an effective media to communicate with rural communities within a radius of 15 km. There are 50,000 listeners amongst communities from over 30 villages who listen to our programmes related to rural development and culture. Tilonia radio has 600 hours of folk songs in its archives. Tilonia radio gives information about Government schemes, like MGNREGA, Right to Information (RTI), Drinking Water, Health, Education, Solar Technology, Environment, Women and Child Rights.
We also interview village level Government workers like ANM (Health Workers), Bank Managers, Post Masters, Veterinary Doctor, Patwari, Panch and Sarpanch. CRS asks them to give information about their different roles and involvement with rural communities.

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.
