The highly reliable news broadcaster has a reputation for bringing original news content from all nooks and corners of the state and nation from trusted sources.
For the past many years, First India News Channel, representing the vibrant, progressive state of Rajasthan, is said to be the voice of the people of Rajasthan through its printed version. Known for its tradition of invariably being the first to break the news and lead the news in the entire regional media, First India News is totally in tune with its tagline, "'Sabse Aage, Sabse Pahle.'

The Digital unit of First India has been able to achieve new heights. It has performed its duty of furnishing correct and credible information to the masses via the Digital platform. With millions of followers on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube subscribers in a short span, First India is now ruling the internet and has left an indelible mark on its viewers- that has a surprisingly wide demographic range.

The credit for the ongoing popularity of First India news in its regional avatar goes to the turnaround man JAGDEESH CHANDRA (ex-CEO Zee network). Under his leadership, FIRST INDIA NEWS that was launched with world-class technology in India in 2013, reached new heights as soon as Chandra took over in April 2018 in Rajasthan.
Chandra, CMD, fondly recollects," The channel was a mere five-year-old child when I took over and was completely non-existent in the segment. The challenge was to make it stand out among other competitive state and national channels. Presently, we are running the No.1 News channel of Rajasthan (regional news channel -Tata Sky 1182, Airtel 361) and one daily English Newspaper in the name and style of 'First India' from Jaipur, which has four editions, namely, New Delhi, Jaipur, Lucknow, and Ahmedabad."

"The hard work and grit of the team plus a range of content on various regional, domestic, and international issues with easy analysis and commentary has worked in favor of the news channel on both print and digital platforms," adds Shishir Awasthi, in charge of the Digital team, FIRST INDIA NEWS.
