All India Radio, Kolkata, announces return of its Kolkata A programme via its shortwave outlet 4820 kHz. As on date (27.07.2013) Kolkata B programme is still noticed on above shortwave frequency. Transmitting Amtala site confirms that they don't have any instruction to switch over to Kolkata A programme and new Mast for 1008 kHz, is also not ready. 

It is to be noted that MW Mast for Kolkata B of frequency 1008 kHz fell down in 2012 after a thunderstorm. Hence, Kolkata B programme was shifted to shortwave channel. Kolkata B progarmme is also transmitted on 1008 kHz using a low power (10 kW) DRM enabled transmitter. Now to observe when actual Kolkata A programme return on shortwave channel 4820 kHz.
