Need of Garhwal Post
The daily Garhwal Post has added a substantial new dimension to the style of journalism that the weekly Garhwal Post represented for over a decade. It belongs to a region that has suffered neglect in various ways. The creation of a separate state was an acknowledgement of these difficulties. As such, apart from functioning as a vehicle for news, Garhwal Post has the responsibility of helping create an environment that leads to development, employment generation and social awareness. As a regional newspaper of considerable influence it is playing its role in combating the backwardness of the Uttarakhand Himalayas.
Targeting new generation
It is fast expanding its footprint across a growing readership, particularly of young people. It is truly on the way to becoming the newspaper ‘For Tomorrow’s People’.
