- All India Radio (AIR) extends signals beyond boundaries by installing new transmitter in Jammu state-run radio station
- AIR plans to start an exclusive news bulletin in ‘Balochi’ language
- PM Narendra Modi remarks human rights violations in Pakistan’s regions in his Independence day speech
September 2, 2016: All India Radio (AIR) is likely to boost its signals that can be heard in Baloch, Pakistan-administered areas of Kashmir (PoK) and other provinces surpassing the boundaries. All India Radio has made this development by extending their state-run radios, said the PTI report on Wednesday.
This came into being by improving the transmission signals of the state-run radio station in Jammu of AIR. The signals were by boosted by installing a new 300 kv digital Radio Mondial (DRM) transmitter in Jammu. The programmes transmitted now from the radio station of Radio Kashmir Jammu has the aerial radius of 300 km and travels terrestrial distance beyond that reaching the PoK area and other provinces of Pakistan.

Now, the state-run radio station of AIR Radio Kashmir Jammu in Jammu has been broadcasting the programmes. These programmes are efficiently transmitted with loud and clear sound waves in the areas of Pok and other provinces of Pakistan. And the result is that these programmes are becoming increasingly favourite and popular day by day. Also, the External services of AIR is planning to start an exclusive news bulletin in ‘Balochi’ language for the people of Pakistan.
These steps were taken significantly, as these developments come within two weeks after the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statement on Pakistan atrocities on the 70th Independence day speech. As in his speech, the Prime Minister brought in light human rights violations in Pakistan’s Balochistan, Gilgit and PoK. This remarkable idea created a stir of controversies, as Pakistan pointed out on the situation stating PM Modi for ‘crossing the red line’ in his speech.

PM Modi’s remark was clearly an answer to Pakistan dedicating its Independence day to ‘Freedom of Kashmir’. And through the speech and by following the further steps to extend the AIR signals it was a perfect fit reply.
