About Us

We are an independent and public-spirited digital media platform for Jharkhand. We report news, lifestyle, events, weather and travel updates from entire Jharkhand state.

Our stories can make you feel surprised, happy, inspired, provoked and even sad. Such stories can open up hearts, change minds and sometimes even the world.

It just takes a few concerned citizens, and some love to make this world a better place and Jharkhand Updates community is home to all such socially conscious citizens.

We believe in being a democratized and approachable media. From individuals to local communities to non-profits, we provide a platform to everyone to talk about stuff that needs or deserves attention.

The launch of the website is just the start of our journey and we plan and hope that it’ll enable us to reach out directly to the youth of Jharkhand and together create the most sophisticated and professional media outlet to have come out of the State.


How do we pay our bills?

We are currently bootstrapped and generate revenue through online ads and sponsored articles. But we ensure that these articles are not at the cost of your reading experience. We promote limited and only socially relevant ads, and all such content is tagged as ‘Sponsored’ to clearly distinguish it from a regular article on the website.


Why independent media?

There is news which they want you to know, and then there’s news which needs your attention.

It is critical for any media publisher to function independently. Being independent helps us to raise issues that truly matters.

We do not accept investments/contributions from any government, semi-government, religious/political entities or any oil and gas corporations.


Do we have a religious bias?

No. We do not. We believe in following conscience over religion.


Do we have a political bias?

No. We do not. We are not pro-left, pro-right or pro-centre. We are pro-solution.

‘Whataboutery’ doesn’t solve a problem.


Values we believe in

Empathy, Coexistence, Volunteerism, Equal Rights and Freedom of Expression.


Areas we pay most attention to

Citizenship, Governance, Environment, Social Awareness, Online crime, Information Technology, Education, Weather, Events, Lifestyle, Travel and Health Care.
