Private FM broadcasters drag down AIR's revenues
Private FM radio broadcasters are eating into the revenues of All India Radio. The state-run operator has seen a 10.59 per cent revenue dip to Rs 2.09 billion for the fiscal ended 31 March 2009, down from Rs 2.33 billion in FY'08.

This is AIR's second consecutive full-fiscal revenue fall, as FY'08's revenue was lower than FY'07's income of Rs 2.36 billion. For FY'06, AIR had posted a revenue of Rs 2.23 billion.

Although the Eleventh Plan for AIR has not yet been approved, work on a total of 194 new AIR stations, including 145 FM stations begun in the Tenth Plan, has continued.

AIR at present has 232 stations in the country, including 171 FM transmitters.

In addition, a total of 32 proposals for AIR FM stations are pending and have been included in the 11th Plan.

A total of 94 FM transmitters in the Northeast and 45 in the rest of the country could not be installed because they did not get frequency clearance from WPC, AIR sources told
