About Us

Welcome to News Despatch. Sabki dhulai. You watch. We’re watching!

News Despatch is media with intelligence. To give readers in-depth reportage about events unfolding in Jammu and Kashmir and across the world is something we believe in. News Despatch brings everything for you through topics ranging from politics, policy and entertainment, to sports, business, food and everything else that matters. We’re developing high-value digital journalism and storytelling. News Despatch is more democratic and cut above the rest. And a media free from family-run and individual-driven news organisations, meant to create a free discourse in public spheres.  We are hooter of the issues about and of media across the world. 

We will question established ways and models that get too comfortable and cozy. No one should be above scrutiny: Not politics, industry, civil society, and certainly not the media. Not them, not you, not us – no one.
