History of The Hindustan Times
One of India’s most prominent nationalists, known as Sardar Panikkar, founded the Hindustan Times in the late 19th century. Panikkar’s goal as an Oxonian, historian, and writer was to broaden the scope of the paper beyond an Akali sheet. He was promoted to editor and the Akali patrons’ money flowed freely. In spite of his best efforts, the paper made little progress. In two years, Panikkar was unable to print more than 3,000 copies of the book. The Akali movement appeared to be losing steam at this point, and funds had run out. As a result of Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya’s intervention, the newspaper was saved from an untimely demise.
Shobhana Bhartia is the current owner of the newspaper. HT Media, a company controlled by the Birla family, is the publisher of the flagship publication. Shobhana Bhartia is a Rajya Sabha member of the Congress Party and the daughter of entrepreneur Krishna Kumar Birla and granddaughter of Ghanshyam Das Birla, is also in charge of the Delhi-based Hindustan Times, which is part of the KK Birla group.
With a ranking of 291 in The Brand Trust Report 2012 and 434 in The Brand Trust Report 2013, Hindustan Times is now India’s fourth-most trusted brand, according to both reports. According to Trust Research Advisory, a brand analytics consultancy, Hindustan Times was placed 360th among India’s most trusted brands in 2014.
