History of The Tribune (Chandigarh)

One of the leading English dailies of Northern India is The Tribune. It is published from Amritsar, Bathinda, Chandigarh, New Delhi, Jalandhar and Ludhiana. The Tribune is one of the most read and the largest selling English newspapers in the states of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, and the Union Territory of Chandigarh. It is a newspaper known for its unbiased news reporting and in true sense The Tribune is an independent publication. It has two other sister publications namely Punjabi Tribune and Dainik Tribune which are Punjabi and Hindi newspapers respectively.

The story of The Tribune started on 2 February 1881 in Lahore now in Pakistan. It was founded by the philanthropist Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia. He was a man of Western ideas and Indian thoughts and he belonged to a family of distinguished ruling chiefs of Punjab. Being an admirer of Brahmo Samaj which initiated social and educational reforms in Bengal, Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia contributed much towards the educational cause of the Punjab region. He was known for his contribution towards various colleges all over Northern India, like Dayal Singh College and Dayal Singh Memorial Library in Lahore. He was closely associated with Punjab University. He is also credited for launching the Punjab National Bank.

The idea of The Tribune was of Surendranath Banerjea who persuaded Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia to start an English language newspaper for the cause of education in the Punjab region through English medium. The very first issue of The Tribune dated 2 February 1881, promoted modern education through English language instead of oriental revivalism using classical languages and vernaculars. Strong public opinion was built with the newspaper’s articles which later led to promotion of English education among the masses and establishment of Punjab University.  

It was not an easy task to launch an English newspaper in Punjab. There was no availability of printing machinery, editorial staff and journalists. With Surendranath Banerjea’s help printing press was arranged and Seetalchandra Mookerjee became the first editor of The Tribune with Sitalakanta Chatterjee appointed as sub-editor. The job of printer was given to R. Williams who had worked with Indian Chronicle. Bipin Chandra Pal was also a staff of the newspaper for a few months during the early phases of the newspaper. Dayal Singh’s connection with Brahmo friends from Bengal played an important role in establishing The Tribune in its initial years.

Propagation of liberal education and taking up public causes made The Tribune popular in all of upper India. The Tribune’s voice was taken note of. At one point of time, the British civilians of Punjab province began to feel that the Lieutenant Governor and The Tribune ruled the province. The newspaper always exposed wrong doings and was strongly nationalistic in character. Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia emphasised on non-interference with editors in running The Tribune and was strongly in support of a newspaper free from communalism.

The Tribune started as a weekly newspaper and soon turned into a nationalistic daily. It was bold and fearless and its articles shook the British Empire. Dyal Singh Majithia died in 1898 and during his lifetime The Tribune became a prestigious newspaper upholding Indian self-esteem. In his will, Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia created The Tribune Trust and he appointed three eminent lawyer-friends to be the trustees of The Tribune.

In 1947, India became independent but with independence came the heavy blow of partition which divided Punjab. Lahore went to Pakistan and The Tribune had to shift its base to Ambala from where it started afresh with a new press. Most of the readers of The Tribune got left back in Pakistan and The Tribune lost its position as the foremost national newspaper of India. The trustees of The Tribune, inspired by the high ideals of Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, drove the newspaper even during this tumultuous period of Punjab’s partition.

 After the Partition, the first issue of the paper appeared from Shimla on September 25, 1947. A small printing press near the Ridge known as Liddell’s was available, which The Tribune trustees secured through the patronage of the Punjab government. A large bungalow ‘Bantony’ on the Mall was obtained for providing accommodation to The Tribune office and staff and some other employees, who occupied three rooms on the first floor. The Tribune began to function under difficult circumstances because of the small printing press, inadequate staff, and financial crunch.

The Tribune supported the central union government in its denial of the formation of linguistic states. Sardar Pratap Singh Kairon, the Chief Minister, Punjab (1956-1965) was opposed to the idea of forming states on linguistic principles. 

The Tribune, published from Ambala for about 21 years, had established for itself a commanding position in Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. The trustees felt that the right place for The Tribune’s further growth and expansion would be Chandigarh, the newly built town and the state capital. This was going to be the third migration of The Tribune in its history.

The Tribune has its seven sister newspapers, i.e; Dainik Tribune, Punjabi Tribune, Chandigarh Tribune, Amritsar Tribune, Bhatinda Tribune, Jalandhar Tribune and Ludhiana Tribune. The Tribune has a supplement named Tribune classified plus which publishes all days in a week only in Chandigarh.
