About UNI The United News of India (UNI), founded in 1961, has emerged as one of the largest news agencies in India with several hundred subscribers across the length and breadth of the nation.

The agency’s subscribers include newspapers published in 14 languages, All India Radio and Doordarshan, the Prime Minister’s Office as well as Union Ministers’ offices, Central and State governments, corporate and commercial houses besides electronic and web based media.

Having started its commercial operations on March 21, 1961, UNI has developed over the years to launch innovative steps and ideas that proved to be of immense benefit not only for its subscribers but to journalism as a whole.

It has News Bureaus in all state capitals and other major cities. The agency also has representatives in key world capitals.

UNI was the first to start a multi-language news service UNIVARTA on May 1, 1982 that continues to provide Hindi newspapers and media organisations a comprehensive package of national, international, regional, sports and commercial news in their language of publication.

UNI pioneered a national news photo service in 1987. From despatching just about a dozen black and white photographs through courier to subscribers, it now uses the latest technology to make available digital colour photos numbering nearly 150 from all over the country. The agency also has a tie up with Xinhua to supply international photos.

UNI remains the first and only news agency in the world to supply news in Urdu. UNI Urdu Service was launched by then Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao on June 5, 1992. The service caters to newspapers, radio and television stations and government offices. Its ever expanding network covers Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir.
