About Us

The ICN Digital Media Group is a not-for-profit organisation founded by intellectuals from diverse fields with the objective of promoting responsible journalism and encouraging new talent. The endeavour is to create a platform to generate rich content by focusing on areas vital for human development and well being like education, science, health and environment which are neglected or not adequately covered in the commercially driven media.Often referred to as the fourth pillar of democracy the media is going through a challenging phase.The ongoing digital revolution has removed the constraints of time and space and information can now be disseminated in real time through various Internet-based social media platforms like twitter, Facebook and YouTube.The new platforms are changing the very nature of media and giving rise to new forms of journalism. The media landscape is no longer the exclusive domain of professional journalists.The conventional or old media is playing a second fiddle to the new media with tweeters, bloggers, citizen journalists, and social media users occupying more and more space.It has been both a boon and a bane for the media. There has been an explosive but rather chaotic growth of online editions of news and information providers. The cut throat competition among instant news portals to provide news on real time basis has led to a sharp decline in quality of content and taken a heavy toll  of professional ethics and good old practice of cross checking facts are no longer being adhered to.Media is increasingly becoming a tool to serve vested interests and no longer an instrument for raising voice of the people. With responsible journalism taking a backseat a lot of misinformation is being disseminated. Several conflicting and exaggerated accounts of an event only confuse and mislead the people at large. Consequently, media is facing a crisis of credibility.The ICN Digital news portal is a modest attempt to promote healthy journalism under the guidance of intellectuals with vast experience, drawn for various fields, besides journalism.Taking advantage of global reach of the online media platform the ICN Digital Media Group strives to embrace the vast Indian Diaspora spread across the world. The objective is not only to keep the Indians settled abroad better informed but also to strengthen their bond with the mainland by addressing their concerns and ensuring adequate coverage of issues and events involving their interests.Simultaneously, a Hindi news portal has also been launched to promote ethical journalism in the national language. Hindi is the language of the masses but the quality of news content is far from satisfactory. This is the main reason that Hindi newspapers and news portals do not command the same credibility as their English counterparts.Good content can be generated by well-trained professionals.Keeping this in view the ICN Digital Media Group is also providing online training in various aspects of journalism to hone the skills of budding journalists and produce competent professionals to help raise the overall standards.The crass commercialization has severely undermined the principle of free and fair journalism and the fast-eroding credibility of media is matter of constant concern.The ICN Digital Media Group has been doing its bid to stem the rot by pursuing and promoting journalism in the “mission” mode, sans commercial trappings.
