Media plays an important role in creating awareness among the members of the society in which it operates. Development communication is the integration of strategic communication in development projects. Today, press or media is widely considered as an important tool for development. How are newspapers giving information about development programmes is the familiar question that is always relevant and needs to be investigated. Keeping in view the research queries, the present study is a small attempt in this direction. The study endorses the premise that media has neglected development news in its columns. The study feels that there is lack of consistency in reporting news related to development issues. Inclusivity is the missing link in the coverage of development news. The absence of participation by the stakeholders in development stories indicates that print media has not changed its negative attitude towards development stories.
