THE HINDU is India’s most trusted online news website which retains the newspaper’s core values of independence, authenticity, and credibility while adopting contemporary web design principles, tools, and features. It is the undoubted leader in south India for news, with majority share in page views in the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. In 1995, The Hindu became the first Indian newspaper to have a web platform. It was the newspaper’s desire to reach out to readers living in areas where the physical copy of the paper was not available. The decision was in tune with the newspaper’s philosophy to keep abreast of the technology curve.
