Adilabad, Brussels, December 23rd, 2015 (SIGNIS/The Hindu). Radio lovers in Adilabad (India) recently donated 20 radio sets to owners of public facilities in rural areas such as tea stalls. The effort from the Civil Society, Adilabad and a doctor from Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences came as part of the promotion of FM radio in the district.

Giving away the radio sets to identified persons from villages surrounding Adilabad town, RTI activist and Civil Society member S.P. Pataskar said dissemination of information and news is easier through radio in rural atmosphere.

Programmes on agriculture especially, are beneficial to farmers in villages, he added. RIMS doctor K. Manohar, who donated half the number of radio sets, recalled his experiences in listening to radio as he hailed from a remote village in Indervelli mandal. He said the advent of FM channels was like rebirth of the radio.
