The Kantipur daily is the first private-run broadsheet daily in Nepal. Multiparty democracy had just been restored in the country when the paper rolled out in February 1993. Since then, the paper has striven to keep the public updated on current affairs, stir discussion and protect democratic values, including human rights and the rule of law. It is the go-to source for credible news, features and critical analysis. With a daily readership of 2.88 million Nepalis, Kantipur is the largest and the most influential daily in the country.
