Why India? Why IANS?

With India's growing importance in international strategic and economic thinking, news about the country is becoming more critical to the world. India alone accounts for over a billion of South Asia's 1.3 billion people. The sheer mass creates news.

Changes in the global balance of power, India's economic rise, and South Asia's continuing political and social ferment, are attracting worldwide attention. In addition, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and the Maldives are on the global radar for their political developments, social upheavals, festering insurgencies, military actions and environmental challenges.


The Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) was established in 1986, initially to serve as an information bridge between India and its thriving diaspora in North America. Today it is a full-fledged, 24 by 7 agencies putting out the real-time news from India, South Asia and news of interest to this region around the world.

IANS serves several hundred outlets across the entire media spectrum, in India and around the world. It performs a whole range of other information services as well. Experienced media professionals drive the New Delhi-based group.

IANS is divided into six Strategic Business Units (SBUs): IANS English, IANS Hindi, IANS Publishing, IANS Business Consultancy, IANS Solutions, and IANS Mobile. A distinguished professional with strong domain expertise heads each.

Its client list includes a range of print publications, television news channels, websites, ethnic publications abroad, government ministries, foreign missions, private sector players, and multilateral institutions.

The explosive growth of the Indian media sector, especially audio-visual and new media, augurs well for reliable, independent and professional news wholesalers like IANS.

News Service

The News Service, in both English and Hindi, forms the heart of the IANS operation. It presents objective, user-friendly news with a global perspective. This makes it the preferred, content provider and knowledge resource on India, Indians and South Asia.

IANS breaks through often cliched and stereotyped reporting about this part of the world. Its talented team of journalists and contributors - some of the best in India - produces a steady output of diverse, well-researched news and backgrounders, features, interviews, analyses and commentaries.

Subjects span politics, foreign policy, strategic affairs, corporate affairs, science, and health. Aviation, energy, technology, environment, the arts, literature, entertainment, social trends, human interest, religion and sports are also extensively covered.

Given collaborations with several international news organizations, IANS is often used by media as a one-stop source of all news - both domestic and international. Industry, media circles and government departments depend on it. Officials use it for policy publicity and public diplomacy. It is also a content source for our other SBUs. In short, it is capable of meeting almost all information needs. (Website: www.ians.in)

IANS Language Services

In 1995 IANS started a Hindi Service. Today it virtually operates around the clock, providing quality content in India's most-understood language. Its subscriber base encompasses all leading Hindi newspapers, websites and other news outlets.

In 1998 IANS broke new ground with the launch of an Arabic Service for the Arab world. Its website - www.alhindelyom.com - helps bridge the information gap with an important region hosting a large Indian and South Asian population.
