DRM launches dedicated information for India

The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium is pleased to announce the
launch later this week of their new online information web page targeted at
India. This is the first initiative of the new DRM chapter/group for India
which was established a year ago in New Delhi. The new "Noticeboard" is for
the benefit of all stakeholders and members of the public who are
interested in making DRM a reality in India. Led by former AIR senior
executive, Mr Yogendra Pal, the India chapter brings together AIR, some
commercial broadcasters, chipset and receiver manufacturers, OEMs and other
expertise from India and abroad.

Mr Pal described the new initiative as "coming at an opportune time as
India is preparing for the introduction of DRM".

Ruxandra Obreja, DRM Chairperson, welcomed the launch of the new
"Noticeboard" which can also be found on the DRM website:  "We want all
those interested to have an open space to share information, ask questions
and get real news about DRM developments and receivers primarily in India".
