The Hindu – 137 years at your service

Started as English weekly in 1878, The Hindu became a daily newspaper in 1889 with its headquarters in Madras, now Chennai. From that south-Indian base, its publishing strength has grown to cover eight states which have added 19 more publishing centres at Coimbatore, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Madurai, Visakhapatnam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Vijayawada, Mangaluru, Tiruchirapalli, Malappuram, Anantpur, Nellore, Kolkata, Hubli, Mohali, Allahabad, Lucknow and Noida. With a readership of 22.6 lakh (as per the relevant Indian Readership Survey) and an average daily circulation of 15.58 lakh (according to the pertinent Audit Bureau of Circulation), it is India’s largest selling English newspaper after The Times of India.

All of these categories have their own rates.
