The primary motive behind this initiative is to utilize the power of radio as a medium to influence change and enhance the standard of living. I am extremely proud of the work that RJ Salil and RJ Archana along with Radio City team are putting in and their efforts are bearing fruits already. I would like to thank the local authorities for their support and cooperation in our battle against the hardships faced by the common man. I urge all our listeners to voice out their issues so that we can make together make Mumbai a better place to live in.”

So in the second phase of Kar Mumbaikar, we have taken it upon ourselves to help people in all parts of Mumbai to resolve the problems they grapple with during monsoon. It was appalling to witness the problems that Mumbaikars face and as true Radiocitizens we went all out to help resolve them by communicating the issues to the local authorities. It is definitely a moment of pride for all of us at Radio City that we have successfully resolved issues with the help of authorities in areas like Kandivali, Thane and more.
