Preface

 

Radio broadcasting in its more than 80 years of journey in India has passed through many cycles of growth. It has been used for information, education and then wholesome entertainment, it has been carrying the character of public broadcasting and then turning to commercial broadcasting, it has been in the control of government, autonomous council and now the private entrepreneurs, it has been in the form of community broadcasting i.e. narrowcasting to a targeted community, it has even been portraying an international character in the form of satellite radio. The developments have been significant and the growth has been tremendous particularly during the past one decade.

When the government of Independent India was confronting with the issues of nation building and decided to take the course of Five Year Planning (FYP) for the purpose of development, radio emerged prominently on the scene. During initial five years plans, radio was developed as a development tool. Looking at past one decade, Ninth FYP emphasized on improving variety of contents and quality of broadcasting and Tenth FYP emphasised on substantially enhancing FM coverage.

As part of Eleventh FYP, a Working Group was set up in 2007 to suggest measures for improvement in radio broadcasting. To understand radio as a medium in Indian extent and to appreciate its role in development socity, it is essential to look into plan perspectives and to make an assessment of the success of these plans in achieving the plan objectives.

The policymaking for radio broadcasting has been a difficult job in view of the nature of medium and its distinct audience. The government has been appointing various groups and committees for collecting the necessary input for policy formulations, to name a few Chanda Committee (1966), Verghese Group (1978), Sengupta Group (1995), etc, The government has also been trying to bring legislations for regulating the radio broadcasting sector like Prasar Bharati Act 1997, Broadcasting Bill 1997, Communication Convergence Bill 2001 and Broadcasting Services Regulation Bill 2007.

The government has even involved a regulator i.e. TRAI whose recommendations have provided basis for policy making. TRAI recommendations for Phase II (2004) and Phase III (2008) of private FM radio broadcasting, recommendations community radio (2004), and recommendation on satellite radio (2205) and comments on Draft Satellite Radio Policy Guidelines (2008) deserve mention. Based on these recommendations the policy for private FM radio has been revised in 2005 (Phase II) and another revision (Phase III) is on the card. The policy revision for community radio has also taken place, though satellite radio policy is still awaiting formal announcement after finalisation of the draft.

These policy for formulations, legislations, recommendations and regulations are the focus of the book. An attempt has been made not only to assess the policy formulations but also to underline policy paradoxes in the context of media boom during pre and post liberalisation-globalisation period. The book tries to peep into the mind if the government while it decides the plan objectives, and initiates the policy framework to achieve those objectives.

This book presents a complete picture of radio broadcasting in India right from its evolution and growth, and the existing status. Radio as public service broadcaster, as a dev elopement agent, as a teaching device, as an entertainment tool, as a commercial venture, all such aspects has been dealt with. The decentralisation debate, the concept of autonomy, the reports of relevant committees, the enactment of legislations and implementation on them, everything has been discussed at length.

Radio’s facelifting has started with the advent of 21st century and the developments have been fast since 2001. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has given an immense contribution in this regard by studying the major issues of radio broadcasting and making comprehensive recommendations. An effort has been made to examine the contemporary value of these recommendations in view of overall media scenario and broadcasting sector.

Though the book is focused on mainstream broadcasting, more precisely on private FM radio broadcasting, chapters have been included on community radio broadcasting and satellite radio broadcasting. The regulatory, technical and all other issues have been discussed in detail in the case of all three i.e. private FM radio, community radio and satellite radio.

Radio broadcasting has passed through various concepts, from control oriented paradigm to commercial paradigm and community paradigm. The three-tier broadcasting has been redefined with conventional broadcasting being challenged by private FM radio and community radio. Educational broadcasting has added one more tier to the new set up of three-tier.

Not only the broadcasting models have been changing, technological shifts have also been impacting radio transmission. From MW and SW bands of AM to VHF of FM and from analogue to Digital Radio Mondale (DRM+) transmission, radio broadcasting is getting a facelift. Thus, this book attempts to underline paradigm shifts in radio broadcasting.

There is a growing need of exploring radio to serve the changing societal needs. For this plan perspectives have to be corrected and policy paradoxes have to be removed. For academic purpose also, there is a need to understand and analyse the paradigm shifts in radio broadcasting. Some recommendations have also been made to ensure that future policy formulations remain on track, reassuring better prospects of this potential medium.
