Special Interest Publications

ngpllogo1Next Gen’s remarkable growth since its inception in 2005 in the fiercely competitive special interest publishing space is largely about self belief. A group of 6 individuals armed with a capital of a few lakhs, believed they could build a publishing house to feed the hunger for specialized content in a country that continues to grow at a torrid pace. With nine dominant magazine brands and successful forays into six business channels in related areas, that belief stands largely vindicated.

From six people the company has grown into a 150 people strong publishing major with national presence. The company now has five consumer titles, Car India, Bike India, Mother and Baby, The Ideal Home and Garden, Smart Photography and it has three business/trade magazine titles Commercial Vehicle, Power Watch India and Auto Components India. Among these titles Car India, Mother and Baby are licensed titles and the balance are indigenous titles.
