Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, Government of India has signed a
Grant of Permission Agreement for establishing, maintaining and operating
a Community Radio Station at Mahila SEWA Trust. Letter of Intent had been
issued to the Institute after recommendations of Inter Ministerial
Committee and seeking requisite clearances from various Ministries. The
Community Radio Station is expected to be operational within three months
as per the agreement. With this, the number of CRS will increase to 49 in
the country.

SEWA started its community radio initiatives for building capacity of the
women of the informal sector. The main objective of the activity is to
provide information and education to the members in the remotest of the
villages. The radio programmes are made on different subjects like health,
water, agriculture, animal husbandry, national and international events
etc. The programmes particularly emphasize community participation. The
professional experts give the training to the women at grassroot level.

Mahila SEWA (Self Employed women association) was set up on 18th June 1975
under the Bombay Public Trust act. Mahila SEWA Trust's main goals are to
organize women workers for full employment and self reliance. Mahila SEWA
Trust organizes women to ensure that they obtain full employment. Mahila
SEWA Trust provides childcare, healthcare, insurance and conducts
trainings and seminars.

The Ministry encourages setting up of the Community Radio Stations as CRS
promises to provide an opportunity to the local communities to express
themselves, and empower the women. The main aim of starting the CRS is to
provide different and useful information to the people in nearby villages.
