- A brief history on Times of India :
The Times of India issued its first edition on 3 November 1838 as The Bombay Times and Journal of Commerce.The paper was published on Wednesdays and Saturdays under the direction of Raobahadur Narayan Dinanath Velkar, a Maharashtrian social reformer, and contained news from Britain and the world, as well as the Indian Subcontinent. J.E. Brennan was its first editor.In 1850, it began to publish daily editions.
In 1860, editor Robert Knight (1825–1892) bought the Indian shareholders’ interests, merged with rival Bombay Standard, and started India’s first news agency. It wired Times dispatches to papers across the country and became the Indian agent for Reuters news service. In 1861, he changed the name from the Bombay Times and Standard to The Times of India. Knight fought for a press free of prior restraint or intimidation, frequently resisting the attempts by governments, business interests, and cultural spokesmen and led the paper to national prominence.In the 19th century, this newspaper company employed more than 800 people and had a sizeable circulation in India and Europe.
