The launch of the Mumbai edition of The Hindu was announced by Kasturi & Sons Limited on November 28, 2015. The Mumbai edition will add to 40 editions of The Hindu that are already published from 17 major Indian cities across India.


Announcing the edition, The Hindu Editor Dr. Malini Parthasarathy said: “We realise our core brand strength is the credibility and integrity of our reporting. This brings authenticity to our perspective. At the same time, we acknowledge Mumbai’s great transformation into an upwardly rising global city. Our edition has eight pages uniquely catering to Mumbai. We hope to capture both the buoyant and the poignant stories emanating from here.”


The concept of the Mumbai edition is unique, incorporating special pages on each aspect of India’s ‘Maximum city’, as the financial and corporate headquarters of the country, as well as a film and fashion hub. The Mumbai edition marks many firsts for The Hindu, which is credited with breaking some of India’s biggest news stories, and at the same time its in-depth coverage of developments and issues otherwise ignored in the mainstream press. At 137 years, The Hindu is one of India’s oldest newspapers, with a net paid daily circulation approaching 1.5 million copies.
