Public Asia was launched on the 21st of November 1989 from New Delhi, as a 8 page newspaper with a circulation of 25,000 copies with an objective of promoting social awakening and introducing a feeling of responsibility among the citizens of a recently independent India. In keeping with these objectives that the publishers had set for themselves, the kind of news published was basically revolving around political and social issues and crime.
Starting from that modest beginning, 20 years later Public Asia achieved a circulation of 25,000 copies and was servicing over Delhi NCR, 14 districts in Western Uttar Pradesh. Growing slowly, but steadily, the turn of the century saw Public Asia as one of the top 25 dailies of India. Not only has the newspaper shed the barriers of New Delhi and spread itself across the entire state, but has also ventured into other neighbouring states as well.
Today, Public Asia has a staggering circulation of over 62,915, copies and a readership of over 1 lac. in India. Additionally Public Asia is now also a leading newspaper in Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Delhi. Currently, Public Asia publishes a 12 page daily issue with 2 colour pages in every edition. In addition to this, Public Asia also has in offering for readers Two colour magazines, namely
- Public Asia -A monthly magazine in Hindi.
- Public Asia – A fortnightly magazine in English.
Not ever deviating from the objectives with which the newspaper was originally started, even today Public Asia continues to be a completely unbiased newspaper with a thrust on political and current events and developments in all fields across the nation and beyond.
Over the years, a lot has changed in Public Asia. Using the latest state of the art technology and equipment, Public Asia is now being printed from 3 editions. Also in keeping with today’s fast paced life, all printing centres are connected by latest technology to enhance speed of news dissemination. To ensure quality of material and content, Public Asia has a regular membership with AFP and AP. The latest photographs are therefore part of every edition.
Public asia has grown dramatically and has evolved with the changing times. The newspaper is known for some ground breaking journalism and even in today’s cut throat competition, Public Asia is still selling Authenticity, Honesty and Trust.
