Technology always affects human life in different ways and information is one of them. The easy access and abundance of information is possible because of digitization of information technology. The one and zero is the answer to almost everything. In the age of globalization and digitization, governments, organizations, and individuals across countries may store and potentially have access to unlimited amount of data which may be available in structured or unstructured format. The availability of the data in reusable format works a raw material for journalism. This has given birth to a new term Data Journalism. The present research paper focuses on the development of data journalism in India. India is quite late to join this data revolution thus; at present it becomes important to study the concept and practice of data journalism in Indian context.
