Deccan Chronicle closes Bengaluru and Kerala editions
Apart from being non in the way that happened in Europe or America, print media in India is also going through a challenging phase with a decline in readership and ad revenue, which is majorly caused by the digital onslaught. As a result Deccan Chronicle has recently shut down its Bengaluru and Kerala editions. According to a source, Deccan Chronicle Holdings Limited (DCHL) has also been planning to wind up Mumbai edition of its Asian Age newspaper. DCHL was founded in 1938 as a printing and publishing company and started publishing Deccan Chronicle as a weekly newspaper which later converted into a daily. In 2005, DCHL acquired Asian Age Holdings and in 2008, they launched the financial newspaper Financial Chronicle.
