He said that FM Radio is allowed to disseminate information related to traffic and other things like government announcements.
Javadekar, who was speaking at an event organized by the CII, said that people on AIR speak well and have credibility.
"So those who want the clip can get it and we will charge for it. And for those who don't want the clip, in their voice say want the DJ to read out news....so AIR has various news (categories) and we will also work as a news agency and will give you more and more news from AIR terminals," he added.
Later on the sidelines of another event, Javadekar was asked whether the news agency, that he had spoken about, would cater to private FM Radio stations.
"This is just an idea," he said and added that the government will review the ground situation.
"We will take review of what exists on ground. What can it function as and how it can work? So, you do not ask as if I have started a news agency. It's an idea. It is in conceptual stage," he said.
He was asked about a proposal that news agencies can also be a source for FM Radio and whether the government has rejected it?
"No, nothing is rejected.... We are starting with AIR news clipping. After the experience, we will move ahead," he said.
