The first issue of Navbharat Times hit the stands on the 3rd of April, 1947, the year India gained its independence. It was the only Hindi publication those days to use rotary machines for producing the paper. A skeletal staff of 12 people used to produce a 6 pages newspaper which was then sold for one anna. The publication was led by few of the renowned Hindi journalists and was considered to be mecca of journalism. NBT was the first Hindi national newspaper those days with editions in Kolkata, Lucknow, Patna & Jaipur. However NBT now has editions only in Delhi & Mumbai. Delhi’s upcountry edition was also shut down to give more value to the advertisers, even as www.navbharattimes.com/www.nbt.in would serve outside audiences.
