In keeping with the changing times, the Department has changed its priorities and focus over the decades. In the 60s and 70s, cinema shows, library facilities and distribution of radio sets, leaflets, folders and booklets were our main activities. The 80s brought in the importance of television, video films and the infant local press. The Department thus guided and nurtured the fledgling local media, distributed TV sets to the villages and consolidated the photo and the PA section. In the 90s the Department mostly concentrated on the official publications, advertisements, video documentaries and in feeding the local and national press about the activities and achievements of the Government with special focus on its peace initiatives.

Now, in the new millennium the Department is modernizing the whole process of collection and efficient dissemination of information, and ready accessibility by the public. In this regard the Directorate is networked with all the Districts and will soon include the establishments of the SDIOs in a phased manner. The Department is thus changing over to digital format and computerization. 

Publishing of Daily Official Bulletin ‘NAGA NEWS’

As the Public Relations wing of the Government, the Department publishes the Daily Official Bulletin ‘NAGA NEWS’ on all working days. The departmental officials from all over the  state are actively engaged in news collection about events and developmental activities taking place in their particular Districts or Sub-Divisions, which are then filed to the Directorate for inclusion in the day’s edition of ‘NAGA NEWS’. Apart from news items the ‘NAGA NEWS’ also contains features and articles. This bulletin is e-mailed/faxed or delivered to all the local papers, All India Radio, Doordarshan, National News agencies like UNI, PTI, other regional and national print media that use the reports freely. News articles are accompanied with digital photos.

The Department also publishes a monthly magazine “THE WARRIOR” which is a compilation of the news reports, features, articles etc filed by the Department’s officials from all over the state.

Besides these, the Department also publishes the yearly official Calendar, Diary, Speeches of the Chief Minister, Basic Facts, Festivals of Nagaland, pamphlets, posters etc.
