A Hindi political news fortnightly, ‘Senior India’, was launched on Saturday. The national magazine is published by Delhi-based real estate company, Senior Builders, which has already announced its plans to launch a Delhi-centric television channel later this month.
Senior Group chairman Vijay Dixit told exchange 4media that the 84-page all-colour glossy with a newsstand price of Rs 15 will cover politics and current affairs. Edited by Alok Tomar, an ex-Jansatta senior journalist, ‘Senior India’, with a focus on north India, has an initial print order of one lakh copies, Dixit claimed.
The inaugural issue carries a cover story -- Gumshuda Brahmin Ki Talash -- that dwells on the growing importance of Brahmins in India’s vote bank politics.
Following the launch of the Hindi fortnightly, the Senior Group, according to Dixit, has plans to come out with an English news fortnightly towards the end of the year.
