Fact-Checking Policy

The Samachar Mirror is dedicated to ensuring the utmost accuracy in all its content. We employ several measures to achieve this goal, including careful investigation of claims, questioning assumptions, and challenging conventional wisdom.

Our commitment to accuracy is fundamental to our reputation and the trust of our audiences. The term ‘due accuracy’ implies that the level of precision must be adequate and suitable for the output, considering the subject and nature of the content. Any constraints influencing this expectation are explicitly mentioned.

All our output, as appropriate to its content and nature, is well-sourced, based on available evidence, and corroborated. We strive for transparency about what we do not know and avoid baseless speculation.

Deliberate plagiarism or distortion of facts, including visual information, is strictly prohibited. Independent verification from sources is sought, especially for claims, information, or allegations made by public officials or those with potential biases. Content that cannot be corroborated is normally attributed.

The Samachar Mirror takes responsibility for the accuracy of the information it publishes. If proven otherwise, we promptly correct the news item or information. We do not knowingly mislead our audiences, distort facts, or present invented material as facts, as it undermines trust. Serious factual errors are acknowledged and corrected quickly, clearly, and appropriately.

We provide a fair opportunity for the public to report inaccuracies or errors through the ‘Suggest A Correction’ section at the end of every web story we publish.

we prioritize reporting, writing, and fact-checking stories, subject to review by one or more editors. We have a multi-level fact-checking structure for stories requiring due diligence.

Correction Policies:

While striving for excellence and accuracy, The Samachar Mirror acknowledges that errors may occur. When errors are identified, we take responsibility for correction and maintain transparency to prevent the spread of incorrect information.

Steps for Accuracy, Transparency, and Excellence:


If readers spot errors, they should contact us immediately via email at:

with the subject “Correction Needed.” Corrections are officially submitted when the editor-in-chief is contacted directly.

Corrections should include details such as the correction, issue date or number, where the error was observed (print, online, etc.), the reader’s name, and contact information. Correct information and the source should also be provided.

A response from the editor-in-chief is expected, and further contact may occur for clarification or additional information. Note that a correction submission guarantees investigation but not necessarily issuance.

The Samachar Mirror:

Once the editor-in-chief is informed of an error, an investigation is conducted using information from the reader, meeting minutes, reporter’s recordings, and other available sources.

If an error is confirmed, corrections are issued in all mediums where the information was disseminated:

Print: Corrections are printed on page 2A in the next published issue, denoting the issue, article, incorrect information, and the correction.

Online: Articles are corrected with an editor’s note at the bottom, explaining the error and the correction.

Social Media: Corrections are posted on platforms where the article was shared, linking to the corrected article and noting the correction.

The editor-in-chief communicates the corrective steps taken to the reader who submitted the correction.
