Prior to the partition of Punjab, the city of Lahore used to be the main center of print media in the state of Punjab. At that time, almost all the major newspapers of the state were published from Lahore. However, in the post-partition period, the center of print media has been relocated to the district of Jalandhar.
The newspapers of Punjab had to almost start afresh at this place all over again. Within a very short time, this industry has flourished a lot and is currently considered one of the major sources of information in the state.
