TRAI is seeking input from stakeholders on low-power, small range FM radio broadcasting

On Monday in New Delhi, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) published a consultation paper (CP) on concerns pertaining to Low Power Small Range FM Radio Broadcasting.

In accordance with section 11(1)(a)(i) of the TRAI Act, 1997, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) invited recommendations from the Authority on the necessity and timing of the introduction of a new service provider for drive-in theatre applications in its reference dated March 7, 2022.

For sound broadcasting services that are designed for specific locations and reception regions, low-power short-range FM radio broadcasting is an efficient method.

Drive-in theatres, hospital radio services, amusement parks, working places, closed communities like residential complexes, small habitations, local events like air shows and sporting events, etc. are a few examples of these services.

In light of this, a consultation paper has been created to solicit feedback and opinions from stakeholders on a range of low-power FM radio broadcasting-related issues. Stakeholders are encouraged to submit written comments on the consultation paper by May 15, 2023.

By May 29, 2023, counter comments, if any, may be submitted. According to a press release from TRAI, comments and counter-comments may be sent, ideally in electronic form, to the email addresses and The consultation paper’s complete text is accessible on the TRAI website at
