About Lokal


Lokal is building a local news platform across India. Lokal is a destination for you to know the news in your native languages. Lokal gets its news from qualified freelancer ground journalists - who submit news on their product. Lokal delivers local news quicker than any other news platform. Lokal is serving a largely underserved market in India ( India 2 ) who got access to the internet recently because of Jio and cheaper smartphones. Lokal aspires to be at the centre of the change happening in India by giving access to information (about jobs, government schemes, community etc ) and wants to serve 700 million Indian users by 2022.

India needs to be informed but in the right way. There are thousands of news channels in the market today but there is a massive gap of information around hyperlocal news, jobs, classifieds and life services in rural India. Lokal with over 4 million downloads in just three Indian states is a one-stop platform for life services and news interaction.
