No matter how much we do a pre-investigation in journalism, there is a possibility of mistakes and sometimes it happens. Whenever someone draws attention to it, till date we do not hesitate to accept it and react accordingly.
Mistakes are corrected by the India Today Fact Check team as quickly as possible and with a high degree of transparency. We value the feedback of our readers, which is found in the Comments section at the end of a news, video or post. Requests for modifications or updates to a news can be mailed directly to the e-mail ID firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aaj Tak monitors its massive presence on social media platforms and welcomes the feedback and criticism we have received from our readers. If a major revision or drastic change in a news leads to a change in rating, it is prominently marked as a ‘correction’ at the top of the news and we give a clear indication about the change and also explain why the change was made. This shows the history of every amendment in a clear and transparent manner.
If a new fact comes after the news is published, any information comes that adds solid new layers or angles but does not change the rating, then mark it as ‘update’ at the end of the news.
Only those modifications that are not considered very important to the editors, such as a typo error, spelling mistake, grammar mistake or any other minor change are not usually considered.
