History of Indian Journalism

Journalism today, is perhaps one of the most celebrated and respected professions, but has its roots way back in circa 59 B.C, when news was recorded in a circular called the Acta Diurna in Rome.

Latest Statement

July 23, 2019

Office-bearers of the Editors Guild of India called on Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman at her office in Parliament on Monday, July 22.  The meeting discussed the recent order issued by the finance ministry to stipulate that journalists, irrespective of their accreditation with the Press Information Bureau, could meet officials at North Block only after securing prior appointment.  

At the meeting, the Finance Minister kindly agreed to meet a group of senior finance ministry correspondents along with the Guild’s representatives to discuss the objectives of the finance ministry order, allay the media’s apprehensions and explore solutions. 

The Editors Guild of India had issued a statement on July 10, criticising the finance ministry order. Subsequently, the Guild had sought a meeting. The finance minister was gracious and met the Guild’s office-bearers sparing time from her commitments in the Budget session.
