The two day conference is an attempt to introduce a unique international conference of South Asian scholars to discuss Media and Communication Policy of India and neighboring countries that has influenced our current media communication policy. India’s Communication Policy has influenced the functioning of its matured democracy. It has proven how the communication policy can influence citizen’s opinion reflected in the recent five state elections of India. In these elections all forms of communications were used including social media to influence the voter’s views.

Media including Social media might have played an important role in voter’s decision making that will be an area of serious debate and discussion. Media researchers continue to hold the view supported by filed observations that negate such influences. Hence there is a need to have a clear communication policy in the use of media in South Asian countries. Exceptions apart, South Asia having colonial past, one of the issues that must be discussed in the conference on how to decolonize communication policy originally designed to control, divide and rule policy.
