Times of India
The Times of India (TOI) is the world’s largest English language daily and of course the most popular Indian one.Run by Bennett Coleman pvt. limited, It sells nearly 2.4 million daily copies. In fact it has surpassed such titles as Today and the Times of London to be the largest selling English broadsheet paper in the world. This can be considered an honorable feat, seeing as there are only 60-70 million English readers in India, compared to the United States who has over 200 million.
TOI has a wonderful look and comes in a worldwide standard format. This daily publication is released from almost all the metros and major cities of India such as Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkatta, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Lucknow, and Pune. The front page covers almost all the happenings in the country and major stories apart from the regular features as “YOU SAID IT” by Laxman, one of the most popular cartoonist, Quotes, News Digest, Opinion poll, Weather Forecast, Sensex, Entertainment,Bullion, and Exchange along with some Classifieds.

Apart from this it has weekly features of Matrimonies, Jobs, Real Estate, Classifieds, Health and Science. TOI has perhaps the most exhaustive information spread over more than 24 to 30 pages, with each page providing the minute of details you would have want.
