News Papers

India newspaper publication began in Calcutta in the 1780's and by 1800 there were several dozen publications in English, with the numbers increasing periodically. Now, the progress has been so much that every major newspaper from india has an internet edition and you can read any India newspaper online.

There are approximately 82,222 registered newspapers in India. Official figures are not readily available, but a conservative estimate would be that there are an additional 5,000 titles published elsewhere in India.

Each week, Indian Readership Survey (IRS) says, the print news media reaches over 250 million readers. These enormous numbers, the survey suggests, represent a chain of growth, driven both by expanding literacy and improved living standards.

According to the 55th report of The Registrar of Newspapers for India (RNI), the total circulation of newspapers in India increased by 8.23% during the period 2010-11.
