History of the Indian Express Group[edit]

In 1931, the Indian Express was started by an Ayurvedic doctor, P. Varadarajulu Naidu, at Chennai, being published by his "Tamil Nadu" press. Soon under financial difficulties, he sold the newspaper to Swaminathan Sadanand, the founder of The Free Press Journal, a national news agency.

In 1933 The Indian Express

opened its second office in Madurai, launching the Tamil edition, Dinamani. Sadanand introduced several innovations and reduced the price of the newspaper. Faced with financial difficulties, he sold a part of his stake to Ramanath Goenka as convertible debentures. In 1935, when The Free Press Journal
The Free Press Journal
finally collapsed, and after a protracted court battle with Goenka, Sadanand lost ownership of Indian Express.[2]

Expansion[edit] Later Goenka bought the remaining 26% of the company held by Sadanand. The newspaper then came under Goenka's sole control, taking the already anti-establishment tone of the paper to greater heights. Also at that time, it faced stiff competition from the well established The Hindu and the Mail, as well as several other prominent newspapers. In the late 1930s the newspaper's circulation was no more than 2000. In 1939 Goenka bought Andhra Prabha, another prominent Telugu daily newspaper. The name Three Musketeers

was often used for the three dailies. In 1940 the whole premises was gutted by fire. The Hindu, a rival newspaper, helped considerably in re-launching the paper, by getting it printed temporarily at one of its Swadesimithran’s press and later offering its recently vacated premises at 2, Mount Road, which became the landmark Express Estates[citation needed]. This relocation also helped the Express obtain better high speed printing machines. Some claimed the Goenka had deliberately set fire to escape financial embarrassment[citation needed]. In later years Goenka started the Mumbai

as his office when he bought the Morning Standard in 1944. Two years later it became the Mumbai

edition of The Indian Express. Later, editions were started in several cities; the Madurai edition in 1957, the Bangalore

edition started was when the Tej group's Indian News Chronicle was acquired in 1951, which in 1953 became the Delhi
