Dalit Dastak is a monthly Dalit-centric[1] Hindi[2] news magazine published in India.[3] It is also a Web television channel in India.[4][5]

History and profile[edit]

Dalit Dastak was first issued in 2012[6] with Ashok Das as the editor in chief.[7] As of August 2017, it did not have a significant readership, in common with much of Dalit literature, and was a loss-making publication.[8][9] It had, however, grown from a circulation 2,000 in 2012 to one of 25,000 by 2016.[10]
