the United press of Pakistan (UPP); and the National News Agency (NNA). A number of other smaller news agencies have come into existence including the Independent News Pakistan (INP), News network international (NNI), the South Asian News Agency (SANA), and Online News International (ONI).

In the early twenty-first century, like the rest of the world, print media declined precipitously but total circulation number have increased. From 1994 to 1997, the total number of daily, monthly, and other publications increased from 3,242 to 4,455 but had dropped to just 945 by 2003 with most of the decline occurring in the Punjab Province. However, from 1994 to 2003 total print circulation increased substantially, particularly for dailies (3 million to 6.2 million). Print media are published in 11 languages, but most are published in Urdu and Sindhi, and English-language publications are numerous. The press generally publishes free without restrictions and has played an active role in national elections, but journalists often exercise self-censorship as a result of arrests and intimidation by government and societal actors. Most print media are privately owned, but the government controls the National Press Trust, a major newspaper publisher, and the Associated Press of Pakistan, one of the two major news agencies.
