Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown, Outlook magazine has decided to suspend its print edition.

In a letter, which e4m has also accessed, Ruben Banerjee, Editor-in-Chief of Outlook wrote, “I am announcing with a heavy heart a temporary suspension of the print edition of your favourite Outlook magazine with immediate effect.”

While the print editions of major dailies are witnessing a comeback, the magazine players are not taking any chance.

“The decision not to print has been forced upon us by situations evolving across India. Lockdowns and curfews--important measures to stop the extremely contagious virus jumping from person to person--mean we cannot distribute the print version of your magazine. Even if we print it for the record's sake, it will be mere tokenism. The decision not to deliver the magazine at such trying times is also intended at minimising your contact with anything that has passed through several hands and could endanger your well-being,” the letter further stated.
