Kutch's 1st community radio goes on air

The experiment that started in 1998 bore fruits after 14 long
years. Radio Ujjas, which went on air on Saturday from Bhimsar village near
Nakhatrana in Kutch district, will serve a population of more than 20,000.

The inauguration took place in the presence of many local dignitaries,
community communication activists and members of Kutch Mahila Vikas
Sangathan (KMVS) amidst fanfare. The radio's first broadcast was about the
inaugural ceremony itself. After broadcast of two-hour programme daily for
a while, the radio is expected to be fully-functional in a few months.
