About us

Dastak Times Publications and the success story of targeted media in today’s Media landscape.

Dastak Times was started in an effort to create a new forum for writers and artists, readers and viewers to explore together the long-term trends impacting our world today. DastakTimes, a complete News Magazine since January 2006 in India published from Lucknow. The Magazine deals with Political, Social, Cultural and other issues of General Interest with Pan India presence across Delhi NCR, U.P., Uttarakhand, Jharkhand, Bihar, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Assam & Maharashtra etc. with around 10,000 subscribers in Lucknow and more than 25,000 in Uttar Pradesh, publishing more than 87,000 copies per month.

Why magazines?

  • Magazines are read by an increasing number of consumers in India.
  • Magazines cannot be muted when the ads come on.
  • Readers do not switch to another magazine when they come across an ad.
  • Magazines are kept and re-read and passed on to family and friends.
  • Magazine readers are qualified before they even open the first page. This is particularly true in niche titles.
