The Media's Social Duty to the Nation and the Democracy in India

Komal Panchal

Abstract: There has been much discussion over the function of the media in a democracy. India has the biggest democracy on earth with a significant media profile. Indian media outlets have recently been under heavy fire for how they have neglected their duty to uphold civic conscience. Media industry risky economic practises have impacted the foundation of Indian democracy. The preservation of diverse points of view is challenged by large industrial corporations in the media sector. Following liberalisation, international media companies have expanded their presence in India to serve their own national and international interests. This has occurred at the expense of the Indian media, that was previously seen as a force for bringing about social change via initiatives aimed at the underprivileged and marginalised segments of society. There is still more to be done, despite the fact that media has sometimes succeeded in acting as a watchdog of govt officials and in promoting participatory communications.
