<p>Interviews were conducted at NREGA sites in May 2012 and the audience were able to listen to their reactions live. They were interested in listening on the phone about their reaction.<br />The workers sought to discuss the change in the timings of NREGA in some work sites including Tilonia and Chundri. After listening to workers, the government officials changed the work timings to6.00 in the morning up to 10.00 am.<br />By listening to programmes over radio, the workers were also able to know the minimum wage that they are entitled to.<br />Similarly, after obtaining information from the radio, many villages started applying for old age pension and they were able to access the facilities due to them. Many villagers have since got their applications processed. One of the cases worth mentioning is of a visually-challenged village elder whose application for old-age pension was processed.<br />The Community Radio Station has also highlighted the existence of labour cards which resulted in many workers contacting the Community Radiousing their mobile phones. As a result, their applications for labour cards are now being processed.</p>
