Radio-BundelkhandRadio Bundelkhand, initiated by Development Alternatives (DA), a leading civil society organisation in India, is a community radio, based on the ideology of democracy for the community, of the community, by the community. Development Alternatives (DA), believes that community radio is a sustainable and interactive platform for dialogue for the poor and the illiterate. The radio station has a unique participatory model of programming and broadcasting and is jointly managed by the community and DA. The reporters are selected from within the community, including young girls and boys from deprived classes, who have become household names in this region. These reporters are trained in broadcast operations and audio editing techniques. They are the anchors and they report, edit and produce their own programmes.

The Jury noted that the initiative of Radio Bundelkhand, with the tagline of Apna Radio Apni Batein (Our Radio, Our Talks), covers the area of approximately 20-25 km around the station, reaching about 1.2 Lakh rural people in approximately 131 villages. It was further observed that the medium has become a vehicle for the underprivileged to be heard, be informed, to shape their knowledgeable opinion, to learn the giveand- take of informed dialogue and to become decisive agents for their own development. The Jury appreciated that Radio Bundelkhand has given the opportunity to the rural poor to develop their own local programmes and to organise discussions on matters affecting their community, thus serving the cause of community development.
