Telecom Regulatory Authority of India
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (trai) has put up a consultation paper on its website www.trai.gov.in. The paper seeks opinions for a new licensing policy on fm radio. Should licensing policy dictate broadcast content? What should be done to promote non-commercial and educational programmes on fm radio? Should there be a uniform licensing policy for the entire country? What can be done to extend the reach of fm radio in the country? And what is required to ensure that the spread of fm radio is uniform throughout the country? These are some of the questions the paper asks.
