The opening up of the media sector has profoundly affected Indian journalism. This is most visible in television where we have reached an era of multi-channel viewing with many dedicated news networks, in English, Hindi  and India's many other major languages as well.
The press in India can also be compared with the best in the world. The professionalism of Indian journalists is out there for all to see. We produce some of the most professional news magazines like India Today, Sunday and Newsweek, etc.


Print Media - News Paper of India

Indian Media, Print Media, Hindustan times - the newspaper you can trust !

Around 4,236 daily newspapers are circulated  in India, out of which about 300 newspapers are in English and 1877 are in Hindi, and the rest are in various other Indian languages. The renowned daily newspapers in English are The Indian Express, The Times of India, The Hindu, The Hindustan Times and The Statesman, Asian Age and Telegraph. The Times of India which is published from 16 cities, enjoys the highest circulation among various English dailies followed by the Indian Express which is published from 7 cities.

The 130-year-old Lucknow based newspaper  "Pioneer", is now  published in Delhi also but carries more foreign news. Sir Winston Churchill was also associated with the Pioneer as a reporter. Economic Times and Financial Express are the two well-known financial dailies  being published from major cities. The popular news magazines are, the weekly India Today which is published from Delhi, and the Frontline, which is published from Madras.

Among the news magazines published in English, "India Today" holds the credit  for the highest circulation ,and it is published in various other languages as well. "Sunday" and "Newsweek"  are another popular weekly news magazine in English. Popular business magazines include Business India, Business Today and Business Standard. Indian editions of popular magazines like Time, Newsweek and Readers’ Digest are readily available and Readers’ Digest is doing quite well and is  published in Hindi also. To cater to women, several  English magazines are available, from which Femina and Savvy are more popular and sought after. Gentleman and Debonair, both monthly  magazines,  cater to the tastes of men!  Magazines dealing with the film world like  Stardust, Filmfare , Star and Style, Movie are available in plenty. Sports magazines are also readily available keeping in mind the indian passion for sports. Politics appears to be the Indian passion as well as a hobby since many detailed stories are published on politics and politicians. There is quite a huge difference in the prices of the foreign magazines like Times and Newsweek and the Indian magazines, and perhaps due to their high prices, foreign magazines do not have large circulations in India.


Television in India

Although television started as a lead project in India in 1959,  it acquired the role of a major mass medium only in the early 1980s. Colour television was introduced much later and now apart from meeting its own requirements of colour, and black and white sets, India also exports its surplus production. About 75 million sets are available with Indian families. India also uses its own space satellites to provide the television programmes to viewers in Asia. The Doordarshan is run by the Government, which enables it to telecast various educational and informative programmes. Some of these programmes are related to family planning, thrift, environmental protection, cleanliness and national integration.
