World Press Freedom Index: India retains 142 of 180 spots, remains “one of the world’s most dangerous countries” for journalists.

The World Press Freedom Index 2021, which determines the liberty given to the media and press in a country, was released by Reporters Without Borders on Tuesday. India has the 142nd rank of the 180 countries surveyed by the organisation and continues to fall in the ‘bad’ classification. The report showed that journalism is “totally blocked or seriously impeded in 73 countries and constrained in 59 others,” India being one of them.

In the Asia Pacific region, India fell even behind Myanmar, which ranked 140, Sri Lanka (127th) and Nepal, which climbed six spots to 106th. Myanmar’s press freedom has been seriously questioned, especially after the military coup in the country in February 2021 as per the report. Norway, followed by Finland and Denmark, have emerged at the top, securing the first three spots respectively. Eritrea in the horn of Africa is at the bottom, ranked 180. Other countries at the bottom are China (177), North Korea (179) and Turkmenistan (178).
