Print is the oldest medium in India and has its origins before Independence when the newspaper played a significant role in  spreading awareness about the freedom struggle. Print media is the most robust and dynamic, among all media in India – by the sheer diversity of opinions they offer. The numbers for print media are staggering as well. There are more than 17500 registered newspapers in India, including English, Hindi and regional languages.  A regional media powerhouse, like the Anandabazar Patrika owns the largest circulated daily in the country with the Bengali daily of the same name. Hindustan Times, an English newspaper,  is the second largest circulated daily and Punjab Kesari,  a Hindi newspaper coming third in circulation. In total, MOM investigated ownership structures of 25 print outlets across more than 10 languages where the largest stake goes to publications in Hindi.
