Delhi-based Aksharganga Media Pvt. Ltd is a relatively new Media house which was incorporated in 2008. But within a short-span of two years, the company has built quite a diversified portfolio. It is presently publishing four titles with a couple of new publications slated to be launched soon.
It goes to the credit of the Media house to launch India’s first Hindi Tourism Monthly “YEH HAI INDIA” (www.yehhaiindia.net). This consumer specific magazine would be celebrating its second anniversary in May, 2011. Another established B2C title of Aksharganga Media is NCR Mail (www.ncrmail.com), a political news weekly on the affairs of Delhi and its suburbs. NCR Mail is available in both English as well as Hindi.
As a holistic media tool – Logistics Times was launched last year in two phases. Firstly, logisticstimes.net (India’s first daily news portal on the business of logistics and its linkages) was unveiled in April which was followed by the launch of the monthly print in May. Within a very short span of time, Logistics Times has emerged as a knowledge platform for the vast logistics and supply chain industry. In July, yet another title- “Yuva India” targeting the youth segment in the country was rolled out. This B2C publication is English monthly.
