Indo-Asian News Service or IANS is Indiamarker's largest private news agency. The IANS is run by a group of professional journalists.

The IANS was founded by Indian American publisher Gopal Raju as the India Abroad News Service. It was later renamed the Indo-Asian News Service. The IANS, whose main offices are located in New Dehlimarker, has carved a niche for itself by reporting on India, South Asia and the large Indian diaspora spread across the world. However, the IANS also focuses on global events which have an impact on India, its geopolitics, economy, national security, culture, society and national aspirations.

IANS has been reporting about India with news, views and analyses that portray the country, and the region, in a global perspective.

Its team of journalists and contributors produce a steady output of news, features, situationers, analyses and commentaries (in excess of 250 a day). The subjects span politics, foreign policy, strategic affairs, corporate affairs, science, health, aviation, energy, technology, environment, the arts, literature, entertainment, social trends, human interest, religion and sports.

IANS' output is now increasingly sought out for subscription by media organisations, both inside and outside the country.

IANS' USP remains the coverage of the Indian diaspora, numbering about 25 million in 110 countries.

The service offers a support system to international media organisations, institutions, think tanks, overseas missions and multinational companies. News, features and views from the subcontinent reach subscribers via the Internet.

The IANS Pedigree

IANS was instituted in 1986 to act as an information bridge between India and North America and chronicle their growing ethnic, business and cultural links. It was this two-way information flow, gradually spanning other regions of the world, which has been at the conceptual heart of the present day IANS.

With interest in the country among the diaspora growing exponentially, IANS has evolved as a content provider to ethnic Indian and South Asia-focused publications and websites around the globe.

IANS Publishing

While IANS is primarily known as a wire service, a key driver of its growth has been in an area of activity not usually associated with a news agency - contract or custom publishing.

IANS not only provides content to newspapers outside India but has harnessed contemporary technology and its expertise in the area to generate and present content - even entire newspapers, periodicals and magazines - that is outsourced to it.

The publishing division is currently producing newspapers, periodicals and journals for clients in the US, Canada, Britain and the Persian Gulf, besides India, not just in English but also in other Indian and foreign languages.
