Indian government approves country's Digitalisation plan using DRM

London, April 9th 2010: The Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) Consortium has welcomed the Indian government's
approval of All India Radio (AIR)'s ambitious plan of converting its vast broadcasting network to digital using the
DRM standard. India is one of the first countries in the world to implement such an extensive and well researched
plan to upgrade its radio infrastructure using the global open DRM radio technology and thereby ensuring that it
can maintain significant reach to its 1.2 billion strong population whilst delivering enhanced radio services.

India's Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure on Thursday 8th April gave its approval to the proposal from the
Ministry of Information and Broadcasting regarding 11th Plan of Digitalisation where Rs 9.20 billion (approx 200
million USD) have been earmarked for AIR to convert to digital which will cover approx 70 per cent of the
country. By converting to digital, AIR will deliver enhanced radio services that offer crystal clear sound, increase
user experience with additional functionality such as automatic tuning by station name, interactive user interface
through digital screens that offer slide-shows and many other services like EPG, Journaline.
The digitisation scheme involves the installation of over 40 digital (DRM capable) transmitters as well as other
digital enhancements and networks for both state radio and television.

All India Radio (AIR) began moving towards digitisation with the adoption of the DRM standard after extensive
field trials and tests since 2007 that was offering in their opinion the most 'robust, reliable' technology. Last year,
it started a regular DRM broadcast from one of its high-power shortwave transmitter located at Khampur near
Delhi and this year it acquired two high powered MW DRM transmitters.

Al-Shabab and its allies control most of southern and central Somalia
The Somali Islamist movement al-Shabab has banned the BBC and closed down transmitters broadcasting the Somali language service inside the country.

Al-Shabab accused the BBC of fighting against Islam and supporting the transitional federal government, which the rebels are fighting to overthrow.

The group said the BBC had been broadcasting the agenda of crusaders and colonialists against Muslims.

The BBC said it was strictly impartial and spoke to all sides in the conflict.

The BBC has been broadcasting its services in Somali, Arabic and English across the country on a series of FM frequencies for at least a decade, and surveys suggest it is one of the most widely listened-to news services in Somalia.

'Strict standards'

Al-Shabab ordered all of the BBC's transmitters to be shut down.

A statement by al-Shabab demanded that any organisation transmitting the BBC, or the Washington-based Voice of America, should cancel their contracts.

Al-Shabab and its allies control most of southern and central Somalia and all but a few districts of the capital, Mogadishu.

They have been fighting to establish an Islamist administration of their own in place of the current government.

The BBC's broadcasts have been taken off the FM bandwidth, but are still available on shortwave and the internet.

In response to the statement, the head of BBC Africa, Jerry Timmins, said the organisation spoke to all sides in the conflict, including al-Shabab, adhered to strict standards of impartiality and editorial independence and rejected any suggestion otherwise.
