India Today is an Indian English-language weekly magazine. It was established in 1975 by Vidya Vilas Purie (owner of Thompson Press), with his daughter Madhu Trehan as its editor and his son Aroon Purie as its publisher.[3][4] At present, India Today is published in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam.

The chief editor Aroon Purie was charged with plagiarism; he copied 250 of the 400 words of an article of the US-based magazine Slate. India Today International—an edition of the weekly news magazine—is circulated across the world to enable people overseas to stay in touch with India. Due to its Controversial Anti Maharashtra article was banned in Maharashtra.
