What if you are in Kasargod and you want information on education, healthcare services, and other utility establishments, or services and schemes offered by the district administration? Just visit www.thajaswiniradio.com.
The all new public service online radio is the first of its kind in Kerala. It can help you get acquainted with everything you might need—for example, local information that is usually available—but from multiple sources. Now, you have the convenience of everything on one portal.
The service, which is scheduled to commence on December 23, will be inaugurated at 11 am, by Revenue Minister E Chandrasekharan, in Neeleshwaram, according to Collector K Jeevanbabu, in a press conference on Tuesday.
The Collector told The Hindu that the online service was put in place to inform people about government-initiated schemes in advance. Usually, people learn about such schemes from newspapers. The online radio will facilitate quicker dissemination of valuable information.
On visiting the site, and clicking the speaker icon, you are immediately greeted in fluent Malayalam. The voice then goes on to talk about Kasargod, providing information, like its location, demography, and other vital facts.
The project is the result of a partnership between the District Administration, and the Rotary Club of Nileshwar, and aims to make vital public information reach out to a wider audience, in a faster and more efficient manner.
