     In addition, to make it open instantly in places where the internet connectivity is poor, the mobile site does not display the ‘heavy’ content such as photographs and videos on the homepage. When an alert is issued by PIB, e.g. regarding a press conference to be held soon, this supersedes all content.

     The regular website of PIB is highly content rich, with content in text as well as graphic and audio-visual formats. This makes the site a bit heavy for mobile phones and computers with poor internet connectivity. In addition, the small screen of mobile phones does not allow full display of the website as on a computer screen.
