The New York Times Company has decided to shut down the India edition of what was until yesterday (Oct 14) called the International Herald Tribune (IHT). The IHT has been rechristened the International New York Times with effect from today (Oct 15).

 

The newspaper has decided to do away with the Indian print edition published by the Hyderabad-based Midram Publications, a company promoted by Deccan Chronicle group promoters which has had veteran editor M J Akbar as director and editor.

 

Established in 1887 as the Paris Herald, the European avatar of the New York Herald, the paper has changed multiple hands and has been called variously over the years. While the New York Times is the sole owner currently, until the early 1990s, it was co-owned by the now-Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post.

 

The paper is edited from newsrooms in Paris, London, Hong Kong and New York. The introductory offer for Indian subscribers is $99 for the first 12 weeks after which the charge varies from $3.75 to $8.75 per week.

 

he International Herald Tribune is an English language international newspaper. It combines the resources of its own correspondents with those of The New York Times and is printed at 38 sites throughout the world, for sale in more than 160 countries and territories. Based in Paris since 1887,[1] the IHT is part of The New York Times Company, and will be renamed the International New York Times starting October 15, 2013
