Mint is an Indian financial daily newspaper published by HT Media, a Delhi-based media group which is controlled by the KK Birla family and also publishes Hindustan Times.[2] It mostly targets readers who are business executives and policy makers. It has been in circulation since 2007.[3]

It is India's first newspaper to be published in the Berliner format. The former editor of the Wall Street Journal India, Raju Narisetti was the founding editor of Mint till he stepped down in 2008.[4] Narisetti was succeeded by Sukumar Ranganathan who served as editor till 2017.[5]

In 2014, Mint and the Journal ended their seven-year editorial partnership [6]

In 2017, former editor of Khaleej Times Vinay Kamat was appointed as Editor replacing Sukumar Ranganathan.[7][8]



Mint began in collaboration with The Wall Street Journal on 1 February 2007, with the Journals former deputy managing editor, Raju Narisetti as its founding editor.[9]


Mint changed from the Berliner format it popularized in India and became a broadsheet in 2016. According to a press release, Mint and Mints digital platform would complement each other.[10][11]


After struggling in the initial years, the Livemint website now gets more visitors than the former leader, The Economic Times. [12]
