Gathering, assessing, creating, and presenting unbiased news and information.

We are the old and the young…

NF Times is a 35-year-old newspaper which was revamped 3 years back in 2018 and is already being printed and supplied daily to more than 20k subscribers throughout the country. Within this competitive environment, NF Times tries to hold on to unbiased journalistic standards and report news the way it is without adding spurious content to appeal or dissuade the masses. We call a spade a spade and not a gardening tool!

Our newspaper is approved by the Directorate of Advertising and Visual Publicity (DAVP) and is in process of being approved by the Information and Public Relations Department (I&PR) of key states and Union Territories. We have a special focus on Odisha and the neighbouring states since our sister concern, Utkal Mail, is being printed and published from these states from the past 30 years in Odia and Hindi language.
