Hindi daily BPN Times to launch in Uttar Pradesh

Uttar Pradesh is set to see the entrance of another Hindi newspaper – BPN Times. Currently available in Madhya Pradesh, BPN Times is expected to launch in Uttar Pradesh by the end of November this year with four city editions in Dholpur, Agra, Bilaspur and Aligarh. BL Baghel is the MD, while BS Baghel is the Editor of the Hindi daily.

The newspaper, which is likely to be priced at Rs 2, will carry 18 pages out of which six pages will be devoted to local news. Apart from this, readers will get three weekly supplements focused on various other subjects. Some of the major cities that the newspaper is set to target are Mathura, Firozpur, Etah and Mainpuri.

Recently, Uttar Pradesh has seen quite a few developments in the Hindi newspaper domain. In October, Hindi Pioneer was launched from Lucknow, while Rashtriya Sahara is set to hit the newsstands in Banaras soon. Apart from this, Hindi daily Hindustan is foraying into Gorakhpur. Adding to this competition for Hindi dailies are the compacts – Amar Ujala’s ‘Compact’ and ‘i-Next’ from Dainik Jagran are targeting young readers in the state and have been very active in expanding their readership.
