Covering important aspects, Ruby explained that the press is broadly divided into the National Press, Regional Press, Local Press and Community Press, having different patterns of ownership and with different goals and objectives.

Journalism in India, being nothing less than 200 years old, with the oldest paper being the ‘Mumbai Samachar’ (192 years old), is still going strong. Ruby also explained to the audience the social and political objectives of the national and regional press, as well as the scope and duties of the Press Council of India.
