Hindustan Olympiad is an independently organized examination by Hindustan Media Ventures Limited. It is designed to determine a participant’s general academic aptitude. Since inception in 2015, Hindustan Olympiad has received an overwhelming response from lakhs of students, parents and thousands of schools. It provides a unique platform to lakhs of participants to compete with each other on standard academic parameters. It is open for all students of classes 1st to 12th. Unlike most ‘one-subject’ examinations, Hindustan Olympiad reveals the competence levels in all major subjects where every participant is given a certificate and an assessment report.
Over the past 4 years, Hindustan Olympiad has helped to identify talented students from the remotest of towns & villages who are given their moments of fame in grand felicitation ceremonies. These ceremonies have been graced & appreciated by influential personalities from the Government, Academics, Law Enforcement Department etc. With the support of our partner schools, Hindustan Olympiad is poised to become one of the most aspired event in school level education.
'Hindustan', covers news across the entire spectrum of international, national and local news relating to politics, business, entertainment, sports and other general interests. The first edition of 'Hindustan' was published on April 12, 1936 from Delhi and the reach of our newspaper now extends to six regions, namely, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Bihar, Jharkhand, Mohali and Delhi NCR. In the recently declared readership results (IRS Q4 2010), Hindustan has surged ahead to become the second largest read newspaper in India.
In the past nine months, Hindustan has added 58 lakh readers to its readership base. A bulk of this growth has come from Uttar Pradesh where Hindustan has added 41 lakh readers in this nine month period. Hindustan now has a 30% share of readership in Uttar Pradesh, with a total readership of 1.28 crore in UP. Hindustan continues to maintain its dominant position in Bihar and Jharkhand with 83% and 73% share of total readers.
The gains across all markets clearly demonstrate the growing strength of Hindustan daily. With many of the newer editions yet to reflect in IRS, the growth momentum is likely to be sustained.
Over the past three years, we have made significant investments in Uttar Pradesh and have opened five new printing locations in Agra, Meerut, Allahabad, Kanpur and Bareilly to add to our existing printing facilities at Varanasi (on a franchisee basis) and Lucknow.
Hindustan has made an entry into Uttarakhand with a printing location in Dehradun, in May 2008. This print location will cover key cities in Uttarakhand.
