Today is National Broadcasting Day. On this day in 1927, the first ever radio broadcast in the country went on the air from the Bombay Station under a private company, the Indian Broadcasting Company.
On 8th of June, 1936, the Indian State Broadcasting Service became All India Radio. Since 1927, radio has been an important part in people’s life in India. All India Radio has been serving to inform, educate and entertain the masses since it’s inception, truly living up to its motto – Bahujan Hitaya, Bahujan Sukhaya.
On the occasion, Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar has extended his wishes to all the people. In a tweet, Mr Javadekar said that radio is the only device that has become an easy medium of entertainment along with news everywhere in the country.
