Documentation of Press Clippings Index
The Institute has been maintaining an on-line database of computerized newspaper clippings on wide-ranging subjects, which is referred to as the Press Clippings Index (PCI).
The index covers major English language newspapers, including leading financial dailies. Selected clippings are stored in the form of digital images from the year 2000 onward and are available on-line for registered users. The image retrieval system developed at the Institute helps users to search, identify and view these clippings at the click of a button. The computerised index of 18 daily English newspapers, referred to as the Press Clippings Index (PCI), was initiated in 1990. The newspaper clippings files are categorised under 58 subject heads. These subjects cover not only economic news, but also important news and information on political, social and other developmental issues
