The 113 –year old National Geographic Society will launch the Indian edition of National Geographic magazine within a year. The spurt in the growth of its interactive site and television channel in Indian has made them to take the decision of launching the Indian edition.
National Geographic is currently negotiating with their partners for setting up printing and distribution of the magazine.
This comes in the wake of a review of a proposed government’s policy to allow selective investments in scientific and technical journals which make these journals affordable to Indian consumers.
Mr. David Haslingden, CEO of National Geographic Channels International, said that they are looking at printing the English language edition in India and then reduce its cover price.
