Also, the publication would be subject to the Guidelines for publication of newspapers and periodicals dealing with news and current affairs and publication of facsimile edition of foreign newspapers issued by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on March 31, 2006, as amended from time to time.

The policy for foreign investment in publication of Indian editions of foreign magazines dealing with news and current affairs includes up to 26 per cent of foreign investment, inclusive of FDI and investment by NRIs/ PIOs/ FIIs; ‘magazine’, for these guidelines shall be defined as a periodical publication brought out on a non-daily basis, containing public news or comments on public news. Foreign investment shall be subject to the Guidelines for Publication of Indian editions of foreign magazines dealing with news and current affairs issued by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on December 4, 2008.
