All India Radio to launch mobile app for its Persian service

AIR has been broadcasting to Iran in Persian language since 1941 and is one of the oldest services in which external broadcast was done by AIR.

The Persian Service of External Services Division of All India Radio is launching a multimedia website and mobile App to coincide with Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s visit in Iran. The Persian language Service has stood through the thick and thin of the relations between India and Iran and the many trials and tribulations that Iran has witnessed in the last few decades.

Presently, Persian language broadcast of AIR is done for 1 hour 45 minutes in two transmissions of 45 minutes and 1 hour respectively in the morning and in the evening. The broadcast is available on Shortwave. Program menu of the Persian Service is reflective of the centuries old bond that India shares with Iran (Persia) in the fields of art, architecture, culture, heritage, literature, music etc and also the contemporary partnership and cooperation in the fields of trade, commerce, technology, medicine, research and development in oil exploration etc.
