The book includes detailed case studies of these grassroots-level projects, along with focus group discussions with the listeners of each of the radio programmes in order to gain an overall understanding of the role of community radio in rural India. METHODOLOGY Work on this research project started in September 2000, a couple of months after the release of The Pastapur Initiative on Community Radio Broadcasting. As stated earlier in the chapter, this document, among several others, is an important landmark in the narrative of the ferment for community radio in India.

By addressing the same issues in all cases, common themes that identify consequential features and patterns across the case studies were explored. The comparative method was also employed to study the international policy perspectives on community radio. We have also undertaken extensive analysis of documents. Document analysis of official publications, factual records, reports and declarations yielded excerpts, quotations, or entire passages, facilitating a historical study of media development, operations and legislative framework of broadcasting in India.

The Commission endorses community broadcasting as a form of media with strong roots in the local community that it is licensed to serve. The development of a viable community broadcasting service depends on a station providing a new and unique forum for communication between individuals and groups within the community served. The programming should be based on community access and reflect the special interests and needs of the listeners a station is licensed to serve. The AMARC Charter also states that community stations should promote and protect cultural diversity and inform their listeners on the basis of information drawn from a diversity of sources.
