The Twenty Point Programme and Communication:
In view of what we have discussed above, it may be useful to have a look at the Twenty Point Programme (1986), which the Government of India has placed before the people as an agenda of national priorities. The points are briefly listed in the margin. As would be seen, besides their thrust on economic development in various spheres, social needs of minority groups, whether women or children or people living in slums, form a part of the agenda. Communication, as defined above, is an important element in'the implementation of the Twenty Point Programme. People have to be informed and they have to be motivated for the success of the programme.
