About Janata Net Swara

Janata Net Swara is a voice-based web service, freely available via mobile phone, that allows anyone to report stories of local issues. After a moderation by our experts reported stories are placed for playback online.


Due to illiteracy and other socioeconomic factors most of the members of Indian tribal community lack access to mainstream media terminals. So, their grievances against government and socioeconomic exploitation remain unvoiced and certain factions are trying continuously to exploit their frustration and isolation to violent ends.

In view of this important social problem and it's evil resultants,we have built and deployed Janata Net Swara for addressing purpose. This voice web service enables any ordinary citizen to report and discuss local issues of public interest.

To use it, they are to call a phone number using any mobile (or land line) phone. Callers are prompted to record a new message at our end.

Once a message has been recorded from the field, professional, trained journalists, review and verify the report. Approved reports are then made available on the Janata Net Swara web page. However it will not be out of place to mention that Janata Net Swara is not completely an automated web service, rather it is a semi automated service with our limited resources, an endeavor to help neglected section of our society.[Inspiration from CGNet Swara]
