Navbharat Times (NBT) is one of the largest circulated as well as largest read broadsheet Hindi newspapers of Delhi, Mumbai and Lucknow. It has a circulation of 769,146 daily (as of November 2015) according to the Audit Bureau of Circulation. NBT is from the stable of Bennett Coleman & Co.

In India, Hindi is spoken and understood by 57.09% of the people according to the 2011 Census of India. This is more than English (10.67%), Bengali (8.85%) and other vernacular languages in descending order. This also attributes to the leadership of NBT among newspapers. Thus, it is an ideal medium for advertisements placed by educational institutions. Such institutions go beyond schools, colleges and universities to those that provide training and courses for the advancement of learning at every level – from office practices and school teaching to driving classes and sports and games. All such organisations stand to gain by promoting their specialities with Navbharat Times advertisements.

In fact, for the benefit of advertisers of learning, one of NBT’s supplements is specifically for them:

According to IRS 2017 and a survey report presented by Nielsen, India is a country where individuals still indulge in reading newspapers extensively. Actually, from 2014 to 2017, the nation has seen 11 crore readers getting added and indulging themselves in reading newspapers. While the number of readers was 29.5 crores in 2014, in 2017 this number has risen to 40.7 crores. Hence, it is clear that newspapers will grow and, particularly, so will Hindi dailies enjoy extensive readership. The readership has increased from 12.1 crores in 2014 to 17.6 crores in 2017. Hence, from this data, it is clear that Hindi newspapers have their own set of loyal readers, thereby giving every reason to the brands/businesses to release advertisements in newspaper.
