Govt cannot run its own site properly, hence people prefer our site. Govt. should appreciate our site and try and learn something.

not all hindi newspapers are bad. Dainik Bhaskar & pioneer are good. panjab kesri is low quality. but it is fact that most hindi newspapers have fake news and filmi gossip. and many hindi papers deliberately spread a lot of misinformation to public, to get catchy headlines and just so that they can fill pages.
like this headline "chupke se chalaa di bullet train". if you just read the headline quickly, public will really think there is a bullet train. person reading the headline will tell another. that's how false rumours spread. this is dangerous. and sadly our high courts are doing nothing about these newspapers.

But myself I'm able to read,write & speak Hindi,English,Assamese & Bengali.Out of these 4editions Newspapers I think the editing in Hindi is worst.They are not newspapers most of them(including Dainik Jagran & Bhaskar) are Commedy Papers.If u are reading them for information then please dont,but for amusement they're perfectly alright.local Language Nespapers(like The Assam tribune,Online Sibsagar,Dainik Agradoot,Anandabazar Patrika,Bartaman) they are far more informative than the Commedy Newspapers.

i subscribe to punjab kesari daily not for news but to have few minutes laugh everyday in the morning to keep my blood level increasing. they are not a newspaper they are a daily fun magazine instead.

i agree to your post to a great extent...the hindi dailies have not lived upto their standards...even hindustan and dainik jagaran have worsened...they pay more emphasis on advertisements and masala news,nudity,catching and inflammatory head lines than authenticity...if compared to the english newspapers,the toi and telegraph have much high standards and authentic news...exceptions exist in both cases,but still english newspapers are a lot better when compared to their hindi counterparts in the modern world...regarding punjab kesari,when i was in delhi,about 10 years ago,i felt this was the only paper to post news from bollywood and other such news on their front page everyday...dont know what the condition is now...

Thanks for the discussion. This article will be archived shortly.
Admins are once again reminded that the error pointed out in the newspaper was imported into this site from the Govt. site. While the error seems to have been immediately corrected here, the wrong info continues to exist in the Govt. site.
We may take this article in a positive light. While there are innumerable errors in the Govt. site and the site itself is down regularly, there are no reports on that. It would seem that the people and newspapers are resigned to the existence of problems there. Newspapers don't even bother to report about them anymore, and seem to have given up all hope.
However, IRI is held to a far

higher standard. In our millions of instances of updates and changes on a daily/monthly basis, even a single error is highlighted. Let us live up to this exacting "Six Sigma" Standard. While errors are unavoidable, let's continue to correct errors when encountered (as we have been doing). While there may still be errors on this site, IRI in all probability is the fastest site on the internet to correct errors. This dynamic state of affairs puts us on par or even ahead of Google & Wikipedia.
Especially, when updating timetables from the Govt. site, pl. take extra precaution. As such, most information on this site comes from first-hand observations of our members, and there have not been any glaring errors so far. Our members are better citizen journalists than newspapers. Already we trust our smart members more than the official site. Let's keep this site pristine, and prevent errors like the ones pointed above from creeping into this site.
Once again, thanks to Punjab Kesari for highlighting this error. The journalist in question is invited to be a member here, and send a pvt. post if he discovers any more errors. It is not necessary to write a detailed full-page article elaborating on one single error. It takes half-a-second to correct errors. In the internet age, things happen fast. As demonstrated in the above case, the error will be corrected immediately. If you choose instead to spend a couple of days researching on one single error, it is highly probable that the error itself will be corrected before the publish date, rendering your article irrelevant.

Thanks for the discussion. While the comments on the quality of Hindi newspapers may (or may not) be true, it is not our place to discuss the same. The error has long since been corrected.
Let's move on.
Thanks.
