The DRM Consortium has submitted posts to the online forum set up by the office of the Prime Minister of India
The full DRM text posted on the forum reads as follows:
Congratulations on the decision and effort of All India Radio to digitise its medium wave radio network which will bring FM-quality radio to 100% of the country. Digital means more than good audio for everyone as it brings new content, emergency warning and traffic information, maximising the benefits of one big investment by offering several key services at reduced energy consumption of up to 80%.
All India Radio is now digitising its Medium Wave and Short Wave transmitters. Digital transmissions provide excellent sound quality allowing for multi-language broadcasts with value-added services like pictures, data and internet info. The first Indian digital receiver for all this has been unveiled. The local receiver industry needs your encouragement and support.
