NEW DELHI: Most newspapers in India are facing an uphill task to maintain their readership amidst the pandemic. India Today too faced the burn. The group announced that its English language tabloid Mail Today will suspend its print publication with effect from 10 August 2020. The reason stated is that the print segment has been hit due to the pandemic but the content shall continue to be published in the digital format.

The BSE filing read that the newspaper Mail Today comprises an insignificant portion of the business of the company. Mail Today newspaper in its physical mode contributed less than two per cent to the total revenues of the company during the quarter ended 30 June 2020, therefore, the said the suspension shall not have any material impact on overall business of the company.

Last year, India Today’s opinion website DailyO got shut and it was reported that many employees lost their jobs.
