To mark National Press Day, we announce a seminar on Special Economic Zone – Boon or Bane. With two special economic zones planned for Navi Mumbai, lets’ us come together to discuss the impact these zones are going to have on the city and the environment. National Press Day – The 16th of November – is symbolic of a free and responsible press in India. This was the day on which the Press Council of India started functioning as a moral watchdog to ensure that not only did the press maintain the high standards expected from this powerful medium but also that it was not fettered by the influence or threats of any extraneous factors. Recommending the establishment of Press Council in 1956 the 1st Press Commission had concluded that the best way of maintaining professional ethics in journalism would be to bring into existence a body with statutory authority, of people principally connected with industry whose duty it would be to arbitrate. To this end the Press Council of India was established and the body that was evolved since November 16, 1966. November 16 therefore personifies a responsible and free press in the country. All those who cherish it, so commemorate the day. Navi Mumbai News commemorates the day by announcing the organizing of a seminar on the hottest issue of the day – Special Economic Zone – a boon or bane. We invite presentations or papers from NGOs, representatives of industry, business houses, citizen groups, planners and others for this seminar to be held on January 6, 2007 on Journalist Day.
