HT Media Group has announced the launch of two new print editions of Mint in Chandigarh and Lucknow.
With this launch it aims to expand its audience reach to 65 cities with nine editions.
The Chandigarh edition will serve Mint’s readers in the Tri-City area of Panchkula, Mohali, and Chandigarh, while also serving Ludhiana, Amritsar, Patiala, and Jalandhar.
The Lucknow edition will be available to readers in Lucknow, Kanpur, and Gorakhpur (Eastern Uttar Pradesh).
Towns across Western UP are already served by the Group’s Greater Noida printing centre.
The expansion is part of HT Media Group’s push towards making Mint more widely available across high-growth cities.
Ravi Krishnan, editor-in-chief, explained, “Our signature brand of journalism, which includes exclusive news breaks, in-depth reportage and smart commentary, is finding newer audiences by the day. This is very encouraging. But it’s also unsurprising at some level. As more people seek financial literacy, upward social mobility and look to participate in the India growth story, they will need a trusted news partner in their journey. Mint has provided that consistently for over 16 years, so we’re a good bet for curious minds.”
