We see investigative reporting as the Centre’s main focus. Our Centre informs the public so that it can be armed with the knowledge necessary to play its role in a democracy. The Centre and its highly motivated journalists are imbued with the investigative mentality and solely dedicated to the public service mission of our profession.
The Odisha Watch is developing a network of partners for collaboration and distribution of stories.
