Abstract: The country's print media, which has dominated the visual, audio and digital media, has grown by 4.87% in the last decade. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC), the circulation of newspapers and magazines increased by 2.37 crore copies during the period. The ABC Survey Report, which highlights the fact that print media is still influential in India, highlights the growth of regional language newspapers like Kannada. Over the last ten years, Kannada printing press has come into its own. This research paper has been done to identify what women members of the Gram Panchayats have in common with the media to inform and disseminate information on Central and State Government Development Plans.
