Both Tamil and English works are subjected to the censorship. An article written by the news reporter of Anantha Vikadan, a Tamil weekly magazine published in Tamil Nadu, in its last issue had been torn off from all the copies imported and the title of the article on the cover rendered illegible.

Anantha Vikadan has more than a million readers, the traders said.
