History of Journalism in Bengal
« on: July 11, 2018, 02:24:56 PM »
Newspapers and Periodicals emerged first in Bengal from the last quarter of the 18th century. At official level, there were systems to collect information of the kingdom from the very ancient time. According to Kautilya, government employees of a certain category were assigned to report to the royal court all news collected from the country. Historians also mentioned about newsletters, royal notifications and other modes of communication during the Mughal period. There was at least one Wakia Nabis in each district whose responsibility was to send details and compilations of important events in the area to the royal court.
