From November 1, 2018, the english newspapers in goa Navhind Times and Herald have increased their price from Rs 5 to Rs 6 each day.
They claim that the increase in their expenses, due to rise in newsprint prices has forced them to increase the price of the newspaper.
The fall of the indian rupee against the US dollar may have caused the increase in newsprint expenses
Most indian newspapers are importing newsprint from other countries
Government agencies are not doing anything to increase the production of newsprint in India
also after the plastic ban, newspapers are being used extensively for packaging.
This is unlike online publishers, who find that advertising rates continue to decrease, forcing them to do other work.
