Q. First newspaper which was printed in Indian language: (December 2022, UGC NET)

1. Kesari

2. Samachar Sudhavarshan

3. Digdarshan

4. Bengal Gzette

Correct Ans: (3)

Explanation: “Digdarshan” holds the distinction of being the first newspaper printed in an Indian language, specifically Marathi, in 1818. Its publication marked a significant milestone in Indian journalism, as it made information accessible to the native population in their own language. This initiative not only democratized information dissemination but also played a crucial role in the socio-political awakening of the Indian populace during the pre-independence era, fostering a sense of unity and national consciousness.
