The content would focus on news from real estates, personal finance, commodities like gold. It would be an investor-friendly newspaper and would also contain news on career, the corporate world, stock market and other business news.”

The newspaper would be initially available free of cost with Navbharat Times. “We would see how readers take it and then go for the pricing,” Dhariwal added.

The initial print run is expected to be over two lakh copies. BCCL had earlier launched ET Gujarati and this is the second in vernacular business daily from their stable.
