Digiteye India is an independent digital news fact-checking venture by a small group of veteran journalists who came together to bring forth authentic facts behind daily news and claims being passed on as news, social media messages and views.
Whether a claim or news, we focus on fact-checking them and our coverage includes scanning claims for false news, and rumours in online media, websites, social media ranging from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to WhatsApp.
Digiteye.in is a part of SoftmediaHub LLP, a limited liability partnership company registered in India in 2014. The company is engaged mainly in news and media, especially in the south Indian region.
We have taken up fact-checking in the wake of a mob-lynching incident in a village near Bangalore in which an innocent IT firm employee was killed based on fake WhatsApp rumours. Formally launched in November 2018, Digiteye India is an independent digital news fact-checking venture with no fear or favour.
We strictly adhere to the Code of Principles as envisaged in our website. We are transparent to uphold the methodology, which is open to scrutiny and our news stories are easily replicable by readers themselves. We follow all the norms of correction and make them public on our Corrections Page promptly.
