Kantipur fails to print Friday supplements due to newsprint shortage
The weekly supplements of Kantipur daily ‘Hello Sukrabar’ and The Kathmandu Post’s “Corporate” were not printed on Friday.
The publications was compelled to limit the weekly supplementary editions of the major two national dallies to its online news site ‘ekantipur.com’. The publications has requested the readers to consider the difficulty due to the shortage and has beg pardon for the inconvenience.
This is the first time Kantipur Publications has come across such obstructions in its history of eighteen years of publishing.
India’s Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) has been holding up the newsprint shipment imported from Canada and South Korea at the Kolkata port for the past 29 days, which is likely to bring the printing of the major two national dailies--The Kathmandu Post and Kantipur to a halt.
Kantipur Publications has come across such newsprint hold-up situation for the first time in its history of eighteen years of publishing.
