The Asian Age, was launched in February 1994 as India’s global newspaper, simultaneously from Delhi, Mumbai and London. Today, it has editions in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata and London. It has come a long way since its inception, and has already established itself within the competitive environment of Indian media as a daily to reckon with. It is, in addition, the only Indian newspaper with an international edition (London).
” We always keep this in mind and cater to not just the why, how, what, when and where of news but we also analyse why something in the news is more than just an incident. We show you what is happening, and the reasons behind it.To bring the world to India, we as a group also publish the International Herald Tribune in India, and a special supplement from the New York Times every Saturday with the Delhi and Mumbai editions of The Asian Age,” a company spokesperson said.
Circulation figures for The Asian Age and Deccan Chronicle together come to over a million copies a day. With over 60 years of experience in publishing Deccan Chronicle and over ten for The Asian Age, it is with confidence and élan that we look at the future and the coming decades.

As a paper, The Asian Age stands for news. Ever since its inception it has set new standards in unbiased and fearless reporting. The thrust of the paper is as much local as national and international. The Asian Age was one of the first papers in India to publish a daily city/regional supplement extensively covering local news. This practice continues. The Asian Age is India’s only paper which has found a perfect blend of national and international news, and the first comment pages in the country, catering to all reader groups.Being a national newspaper, The Asian Age keeps its eyes and ears open to all that is happening in the country today, be it in the power corridors of Delhi or in a border village in Kashmir. International news is another of its strong points. Several readership surveys have cited The Asian Age for the wide spectrum of international news it provides. A recent national survey shows how the readership of the paper has risen phenomenally among the internet savvy and the upwardly mobile.
The Asian Age is global in more ways than one. It has established a unique editorial tie-up with one of the world’s leading global English newspapers, The New York Times. Every Saturday, The New York Times prepares an exclusive 8-page supplement for the Delhi and Mumbai editions of The Asian Age. The New York Times International Weekly is a compendium of the best articles and news features from leading journalists in the United States.
In addition, The Asian Age has supplements on movies, fashion and lifestyle, education, information and technology, health, and books. It is the most comprehensive newspaper in the Indian market, not just for the entire family, but also for the entrepreneur, the young executive, and the established CEO.
