"The Indian radio which was previously controlled by the British rulers is free now from the narrow vested interests".

- Which indicates it is removed from control.

"Free from" means released or removed from something.

So the correct sentence is, "The Indian radio which was previously controlled by the British rulers is now free from the narrow vested interests".

@All.

I am free now.
Now I am free.

Both sentences are correct and can be used in a similar manner and in place of the other. But, when we observe it minutely, we see a subtle but great difference. "I am free now' means something like, "I am currently free but I will have to get back to work later. So, if there is something extra which needs to be attended to, I can do it now'. Now, "Now I am free' is very definitive and lofty. It indicates that now that something big/monumental has happened, I am (finally) free. Say, I got rid of guilt by performing an act of charity and now my conscience is clear or may be I achieved personal liberty which I did not have before.

"The Indian radio" cannot be 'an Indian radio' because Indian radio is unique in the world that's it can't present at any other place except India that is radio is specific of India.
