The RNI further reviews the overall credentials and the other documents linked as well as its full aspects. If all the process and checking passes the tests then the RNI confirms the decision to the District Magistrate and the publisher for the issue of the newspaper’s title via an official letter.
After this, the publisher will file the copy of the declaration to the District Magistrate in the prescribed structure and that will give a head start to the publication of the newspaper.
According to the norms, the newspaper’s first issue should take place within the 45 days from the day of the validity of declaration if the newspaper is of weekly or daily publication period, however, in the case of the periodical, the issue can take place within the time period of 90 days. During the course of submission to RNI, you will be needed to generate an attested copy of declaration of the title verification, the name in which the newspaper is supposed to be printed under, the newspaper’s first issue, along with a “No foreign tie-up” affidavit, which has to be attested by Notary.

In the preliminary stage, when the newspaper first copies are published the aspiring newspaper agency must issue the exact number of newspapers that was stated in the document to the RNI because if the number is less, then the RNI reserves the right to discard the possibility of newspaper becoming a part of the newspapers that the hundreds of thousands of Indians look forward to every morning.

If you are the publishing head and do not have another company taking care of running to the RNI then maybe it will be a good thing to hire another publishing head or newspaper registration agent because getting everything in line for the commencement of the newspaper is a task that will consume time and will need organization which will be possible if separate heads take care of the specific sections.
