Amrita Bazar Patrika was one of the oldest newspapers in India and started on 20th February, 1868 in the village of Amrita Bazar as a Bengali weekly newspaper. In 1871 the offices of the Patrika moved to Calcutta and published news in English and Bengali as a bilingual weekly till 1878, when it turned into an English newspaper due to the Vernacular Press Act of 1878. From 1891 onwards Amrita Bazar Patrika was published as a daily newspaper. In some years the newspaper was also published bi-weekly on Thursday and Sunday.
