This was organized by the Ministry of Information and broadcasting at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi. The objective of the National CR Sammelan is to nurture, promote and empower Community Radio Movement in the country, so that the potential of the medium is fully utilized.

This was a wonderful opportunity for Keystone and Radio Kotagiri to get more information, insights and knowledge from other community radio stations.
