Waqt ki Awaaz’ community radio was promoted by Shramik Bharti in October 2009 in Bairi Dariyav village of Maitha block in Kanpur Dehat district of Uttar Pradesh. Formal broadcasting started on September 24, 2013. Waqt Ki Awaaz is working as the community’s own medium of communication for dialogue, information and knowledge sharing, and citizen action for empowerment, equity and equality.

Unlike commercial and public sector broadcasters, Waqt Ki Awaaz is uniquely placed in the community. All its producers, grameen reporters, artists and musicians are from the local community itself. Waqt Ki Awaaz provides space to their talent and identity. Programmes are produced in local dialect in order to establish better relationship with the community. As a result, the community feels a closer association and ownership towards the radio, and contribute by sharing their experiences, stories, view, songs or monologues through the radio programmes.

The programmes of Waqt Ki Awaaz reach out to a population of more than 3,00,000 people in about 300 villages. Our listeners includes men, women, children and elderly. Among them are students, artists, shopkeepers, vendors, farmers, cattle rearers, disabled persons and transgenders, among others.

Waqt Ki Awaaz community radio station is striving to become a platform for its listeners to showcase their talents. We bring in views of the mainstream and also of the marginalised to make an inclusive society with everyone contributing, sharing and enjoying equally. We want to be part of the change our listeners want to see in their lives.
