India's oldest financial daily, Financial Express is today one of the leading newspapers in the country. Part of The Indian Express Group, the newspaper publishes eleven editions in English from leading cities—Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mumbai and Pune. It also has an edition in Gujarati, published from Ahmedabad. The newspaper has offices across the country and is headquartered in Delhi.
The Financial Express has supported the eventual breakdown of the arbitrary control-based system that characterized the Indian economy to its emergence as a free market enterprise with accent on merit. The paper espouses the same position in its coverage of international developments. The position is based on a careful observation of the way economies have evolved in the past few decades. This is also known as a championing of the free market position. The FE columns and editorials articulate this opinion succinctly. The FE edit page columns are therefore the most widely read pieces among all business publications in India. Besides, the newspaper has an exclusive tie-up with the Financial Times and The Economist of London to carry its articles all days of the week on an exclusive co-branded page and the op-ed page.
