New Delhi Times ends 20 years as a registered newspaper
NOTew Delhi Times, an international print and online Indian weekly that focuses on international news, has completed 20 years as a registered newspaper.
The journal started as an English publication and a Hindi edition was launched in 1994. It covers various international topics including politics, economics, investment, sports and culture. More recently, the focus has also been on domestic politics.
The New Delhi Times (NDT) was founded by Dr Govind Narain Srivastava, accredited parliamentary correspondent and expert on non-aligned movements and international affairs, in 1988.
After her passing in 1999, Dr Pramila Srivastava became the president of the newspaper and took office. Ankit Srivastava, who had over 18 years of experience working with the United Nations on human rights and 15 years of journalism experience, joined the team as editor in 2006 .
After being published for the past 28 years, the weekly now has a 12-page print edition and a 24-page online (e-paper) edition, with a team of 25 journalists working for it.
The news website was launched in 2011. As reported in April 2020, the news website received traffic of approximately 2 million visitors per month. For print, the New Delhi Times reported a readership of 1.2 million in Delhi-NCR itself.
Many notable columnists, journalists and politicians such as David Kilgour, Tarek Fatah have been associated with the newspaper. Tarek Fatah hosts “What the Fatah”, an online show, on the New Delhi Times YouTube channel.
NDT has also worked with several non-governmental organizations such as the International Institute for Non-Aligned Studies, the Indian Council of Education, the Breastmilk Foundation and the GNS Foundation to raise awareness of the work of these organizations. NDT is part of the Srivastava group which has diversified its activities in the fields of health, travel, commerce, publishing, energy, etc.
Unlike many newspapers, the New Delhi Times avoids choosing a political side in national or international politics and does not line up on either side. The information on the website and the work of the journalists appear to be balanced.
