ANSWER: Hi Prashant,
Below are my comments

The print media have a long history with the evaluation in the 15th Century. There are many running and established newspapers, magazines, journals running across the globe and doing pretty well in the field of print media. The print media has seen many revolutions in past years and have actively participated in revolutionizing the people against the odds and untrue.
The electronic media was developed in early 20th century and with the invention of the internet the print media has developed enormously in the past few decades. This electronic media shares the news on the go and people can get updated with the recent updates from anywhere. The evolution of new gazettes, devices and other machines have helped the electronic media, Ebooks and other websites to find a new space in the human life.
But I still believe there is a long way to go for electronic media and there is lot many things to cover by them.
The classic way of reading books and newspapers is still appreciated and accepted widely around the globe as still people feel excited about reading the printed books, marking the pages and sharing the copy within their network. No doubt ebooks are emerging as a new trend in the market but still the preferred way of reading is the print version in my opinion.

Times of India Newspaper Case Study

As a example, do you feel the leading newspaper which covers all news
categories viz political, business, sports, international, General, Science and Technology etc could have affected in their print sales business because many people now can view the e-times of India version and now there are so many TV
news channels which covers almost all category news ?.

i.e. There could be people who may have stopped buying times of india newspaper
as they get access to electronic media.

People still prefer print over television,computers ?.

In today's era when internet has marked its presence in the homes of every individual, the electronic media and news channels have paved their way to get into the hearts of the individuals. But even today there is a major chunk of the people who still believe in reading print versions of the books, newspapers and journals.
In an estimation it has found that the leading newspapers still print millions of copies per day to cover this chunk of readers.
People do have access to the electronic version and through that they can read/watch multiple news at the same time but still they prefer to have at least one newspaper or magazine in print format to read at leisure time.
