In India the campaign to legitimise community radio began in the mid-1990s, soon after the Supreme Court of India ruled in its judgment of February 1995 that “airwaves are public property”. This inspired groups across the country; however, only educational (campus) radio stations were originally permitted (under a number of conditions).
Anna FM was India’s first campus “community” radio station. Launched on 1 February 2004, it is run by the Education and Multimedia Research Centre (EMRC); all programmes are produced by Media Science students at Anna University.
