About

Politics. Policy. Governance. Social and cultural change. These are the four pillars of ThePrint – a new media platform where readers come for daily news, incisive opinions and a fresh perspective on new and old India.

In the five years since we launched, ThePrint has grown and built an impressive network across India. Its mission is high-quality, fair on-ground and questioning journalism. It’s a crew of inspired and informed editors, reporters, analysts, designers, producers and sales and marketing professionals.

Our aim is not just to bring you the story, but also the backstories that brought us to this point and where we are headed next – through in-depth, visually-compelling and data-rich features, videos and podcasts.

We have made a mark through our exceptional ground reporting on the biggest stories of our times. ThePrint’s young reporters – who have now become familiar bylines – are always where the story is.

Today, ThePrint has become the most-read and most-watched news space among the new digital platforms.

At ThePrint, we are committed to being a fair and an equal opportunity newsroom.

ThePrint was founded on three central beliefs:
1. There is a growing audience of curious, critical and questioning Indians who value the news they need, from the names they trust.

2. There exists a wide philosophical and intellectual space that is socially and economically liberal and not doctrinaire Left or Right. A space for non-hyphenated journalism.

3. There is no contradiction between good journalism and the market-place.

Are we living up to our promise? You can check out ThePrint on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. You can tell us what you think at feedback@theprint.in
