Each corn pops up bulging in size, same way the young mind is bubbling with energy and this Campus Radio gives a vent for this energy.
Mission and Vision "The vision is to provide a medium of communication by giving voice to the community. The focus is on communities living within the transmission zone of the radio station. It reaches out to every section of the society with special efforts focussed towards communities that are marginalised to ensure that the less privileged sections of the community also find a voice through the radio".
RKDF Institutes aim to develop multi talented students along with faculties and local communities by spreading valuable information and knowledge through powerful, easy and affordable modes of communication. The Community Radio Station was established in the campus in order to benefit students and local people.
The way maize grain has potential of popping up when given heat, Community if given a voice bubbles like popcorn. It is this energy we need from the community through our Community Radio initiative. Let us ignite the souls of the community by lending them a voice.
