“The Eastern Today” as the pioneering English Daily covering Eastern India, prominently Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Nagaland has a strong readers’ base and a strong presence in terms of circulation across four states of Northeast, namely Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Sikkim and a pan-India presence with our website

Unlike other dailies of newspaper either in Arunachal or Assam, ours is the only English Daily which reaches to all nook and corner of Arunachal Pradesh on the same day itself.  This gives us the edge over other English Dailies as this can connect with the masses even to the remotest places. The Eastern Today, initially focuses upon the eight eastern districts of Arunachal Pradesh, namely, Longding, Tirap, Changlang, Dibang Valley, Lower Dibang Valley, Namsai, Lohit and Anjaw, seven upper Assam districts, namely, Tinsukia, Dibrugarh, Sivasagar, Jorhat, Golaghat, Dhemaji and Lakhimpur, and the four eastern Nagaland districts namely Mon, Tuensang, Khipire and Longleng.These areas despite being rich in natural resources have always been exploited and their development has always been overlooked. As a result of which the communities residing in these contagious part of the nation has by and large remained socio-economically backward. 

The Eastern Today determined to create a medium for these areas and for Northeast at large to connect ourselves and stress those subjects that matter to us and we offer a lens to soi-disant main India so that it shift it’s paradigm in regard to the neglected Indian Eastern Periphery.
