11 digital-only newsrooms of India form group to ‘build robust news ecology’

Eleven digital-only news organisations of India have united to form a body that would "represent, amplify and evolve best practices to build a robust digital news ecology that is truly world-class, independent and upholds the highest standards of journalism".

The united body is named "Digipub News India Foundation," reports Scroll.in, quoting a press release issued yesterday by the organisation.

"Despite the growth of digital-only news organisations in India, there is no single body representing the country's digital news ecosystem," states the press release adding that the organisation, registered earlier in October, aims to fill that gap.

Scroll.in is among the founding members of the organisation, along with fact-checking websites Alt News, Boomlive, Article 14, Cobrapost, HW News, Newsclick, Newslaundry, The News Minute, The Quint and The Wire.

Dhanya Rajendran, editor-in-chief of The News Minute is the chairperson of the Digipub News India Foundation, while Newsclick editor Prabir Purkayastha is the vice-chairperson. The Quint co-founder Ritu Kapur and Newslaundry co-founder Abhinandan Sekhri are the general secretaries of the foundation.

Independent or freelance journalists working with digital news websites can also become its members, the release added.
