Ground Report India needs sponsorship(s) and individual supports for Exploring India for "Water & Agriculture" tour. We look forward to your continued supports. As a citizen media we rely on you to continue to work towards our combined goals

The Ground Report India has arisen out of our concerns and awareness for a balanced media representation of the ground realities of present day India. We presently feel that the Indian media does not provide sufficient attention to the situation of the "common man". We believe that the Ground Report India is timely, as push for India to provide an economic growth that it is inclusive to the hundreds of millions of people who still live on less than $2 a day.

For each edition of the Ground Report India print magazine, the GRI team tours for around two months (more or less 60 days) in hundreds of areas of various states of India for ground reporting. Because of our efforts to report concretely from the ground, Ground Report India is a quarterly print-magazine.
