Amar Ujala , was launched on the 18th of April 1948 from Agra, as a 4 page newspaper with a
circulation of 2576 copies with an objective of promoting social awakening and introducing a feeling of
responsibility among the citizens of a recently independent India. In keeping with these objectives that the
publishers had set for themselves, the kind of news published was basically revolving around political and social
issues and crime.
Starting from that modest beginning, 20 years later Amar Ujala achieved a circulation of 20,000
copies and was servicing over 14 districts in Western Uttar Pradesh. Growing slowly, but steadily, the
turn of the century saw Amar Ujala as one of the top 3 dailies of India. Not only has the newspaper shed the
barriers of Western Uttar Pradesh and spread itself across the entire state, but has also ventured into other
neighboring states as well.
Currently, Amar Ujala publishes an 18 page daily issue with more colour pages in every edition.
In addition to this, Amar Ujala also has in offering for readers four colour magazines, namely
a) Career and Education -A weekly career magazine for youth every Wednesday.
b) Rupayan -Aapki Personal Friend: An all new weekly magazine for women every Friday.
c) Sunday Anand -Bole to DIRECT Bollywood se: A completely new look film magazine every Sunday.
Over the years, a lot has changed in Amar Ujala. Using the latest state of the art technology and equipment,
Amar Ujala is now being printed from 18 editions. Also in keeping with today's fast paced life,
all printing centres are connected by latest technology to enhance speed of news dissemination.
To ensure quality of material and content, Amar Ujala has a regular membership with AFP and AP.
The latest photographs are therefore part of every edition.
Amar Ujala has grown dramatically and has evolved with the changing times.
The newspaper is known for some ground breaking journalism and even in today's cut throat competition;
Amar Ujala is still selling Authenticity, Honesty and Trust.
