Who we are

The Reporters' Collective is a non-profit Indian media collaborative that carries out investigative journalism. We formally began work in 2021. We are a tiny group of like-minded people. But our work packs a punch. We collaborate with other news organisations to publish our investigations simultaneously in Indian languages.

What we do

The Collective focuses on high-quality reporting and investigations that offer citizens a deeper understanding of India's political economy and governance. Instead of just reporting on victims, The Collective aims to uncover the root causes of misgovernance and its impact on citizens. 

Our Values

We provide exclusive investigative journalistic work, backed by solid documented evidence, and rigorously fact-checked. Our members fearlessly report the truth about those in positions of power, governance, and policy-making, providing new information and knowledge.

Our Funding

We rely on donations from Indian citizens who value good reportage and can afford to support it for themselves, as well as for those who cannot. The government or advertisers have zero influence over the work we do because we are solely funded by the public.
