Figure 1 Print Media
The Print Media is one of the most important pillars of democratic system in our country, which is the largest democracy in the world. As many as 1,18,239 publications (Newspapers & Other periodicals) have been registered in India till 31st March,2018 witnessing a constant growth of the Print Media. The rise in the number of registered publications is a pointer to the fact that proliferations of audio, visual and digital media have not adversely affected the substance and growth of Print Media. It continues to empower the common man to assert his right and to participate in strengthening the democracy.
Print Media has responded appropriately to the new changes and challenges with its modern approach. It has embraced Information Technology, which resulted in better coverage with great speed and affordable price. The newspaper industry was, in many ways, was the news sector hit first and hardest by the advent of the digital age. As readers began to move online, papers were still producing strong profit margins with the vast majority of revenues tied to their legacy product. So, for the newspaper industry—culturally more tied to content creation than to engineering, change came very slowly—if at all. Within a few years, the industry found itself far behind the technology giants—and behind their readers’ changing news habits—in shaping the future of news. Since then, the pace of change has only accelerated. While the industry has finally begun to experiment with new revenue streams as well as new ways of creating content and engaging with audiences, the numbers are far from reassuring.
Registrar of Newspapers for India (RNI) is an attached office of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and a statutory office under Section 19(A) of the Press & Registration of Books Act, 1867.
The main objective of this Act during British period was to keep a record of Books and Publications published in the country. The Act has been amendment 22 times since then (11 time before independence and 11 times thereafter).
Office of registrar of newspaper for india. came into existence in 1956 with headquarters at New Delhi. there was also a Regional Office at Shimla, looking after certain functions related to Registration, till 1977.
A booster shot from the general and state elections and greater credibility will make the print media a dominant force in India in 2019, surpassing an impressive growth rate of 2018, Magna Global, a division of media agency group IPG Mediabrands, had forecast.
As per the report, print media ad revenues grew 5.6% in 2018 to Rs 22,121.8 crore, and it is expected to go up to Rs 22,424.3 crore in 2019.
Shashi Sinha, CEO, IPG Mediabrands, said print is also growing because of the credibility it offers in this era of fake news. “India is the only market in the world where print continues to be dominant and is growing in all aspects — circulation, readership and geography. The medium is growing strongly on the back of language, which has led to the growth in the number of language newspapers,” Sinha said.
