Thrill of Akashvani with Agricultural Program-Akashvani Mangaluru
All India Radio Mangaluru is making a difference! It is encouraging the Radio Clubs and Gram Panchayaths to distribute free Radio sets to the needy poor.Akashvani Mangaluru is broadcasting series of Agricultural programs in co-operation with Agriculture Information Centre, Moodbidre through which Radio sets are distributed to the successful listeners and as mementoes to the guests who participate in its monthly programs. In the next program it is thinking to give 50 Radio sets to the village poor.
Recently Maanila Gram Panchayath distributed 37 Radio sets to the poor on free of cost in a befitting program. It is also thinking to give another 50 sets to the backward communities. The Gram Panchayath is identifying the poor in the category of backward community and preference will be given to those who are not having the Radio sets. Vijaya Rural Development Foundation provided 100 Radio sets in a unique program to the needy schools to monitor Educational programs which were sponsored by the Foundation. Dr. Vasanthkumar Perla, ASD and Program Head of Akashvani Mangaluru had been invited to participate as Chief Guest and he appreciated the unique efforts of the Foundation.
The local press has applauded this unique venture. The effort of Program Staff of AIR Mangaluru is commended by the public for publicizing Akashvani through this unique way.
