CPJ and TrustLaw: Know your rights guide for journalists in India

The Committee to Protect Journalists has been responding to the needs of journalists in India as they confront a range of challenges, from criminal action to online abuse, and learn to navigate an increasingly hostile environment for the press.  

Developed in collaboration with TrustLaw—the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono service—this guide covers the legal rights journalists have in India. It provides guidance to equip journalists with a working understanding of the remedies and protection measures that are available under Indian law.

The guide and overview are also available in Hindi.
