Bengali Online Newspapers Published from Bangladesh


After reading one of my earlier blog post on online Bengali newspapers (Published from Kolkata) many readers asked me to write a post on the online Bangla newspapers (epapers) published from Bangladesh. I fully agree and support their demand and think that everyone must get a chance to see and share the rich Bengali culture that is present both in India and Bangladesh. So here I am, with the ever-expanding list of Bangla Newspapers that are published in Bangladesh and are also available online.

In Bangladesh the daily newspapers are published from Dhaka, as well as from major regional cities of Chittagong, Khulna, Rajshahi, Sylhet and Barisal. All daily newspapers are morning editions, there are no evening editions in Bangladesh.

Some Newspapers have just portals... and some have epapers... so in this post have mentioned links to ePapers as well as News Portals. If you feel that I have missed to mention any site then please do tell me in the comments section. Also your feedback is very much important to me so please do comment.
So here goes the list:-
