About Us

Highland Post is an English daily newspaper published from Shillong, Meghalaya. Its history dates back to 2005 when Mawphor Today came out as a sister concern of Mawphor, a leading Khasi daily. However, Mawphor Today was closed down in 2013 as the Registrar of Newspaper for India (RNI) cannot register two publications under the same name. This led to the emergence of a new English daily, Highland Post, which began publication on November 6, 2013.

Highland Post had a humble beginning with just eight pages and operating from a temporary office at Lower Lachaumiere, Shillong. Within a year, the newspaper took a giant leap by increasing its pages to twelve, becoming the first English daily published from Meghalaya to do so.

Registered with the RNI in 2017, Highland Post is now operating from its permanent office building at Mawkhar, Shillong.

We at Highland Post believe in an independent and approachable media. We hope to play our role as the fourth column of democracy by creating public awareness and becoming a medium of mass education.

Every time we hit the stands, we hope to respect the tenets of journalistic ethics and serve social purposes. We also look forward to provide a platform to everyone to talk and air issues that need or deserves attention.
