Punjab Kesari is a Hindi-language newspaper published from many centres in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi in India. It is owned by the Punjab Kesari group (The Hindsamachar Ltd.). It is one of the three newspapers started by the group; the other two are Hind Samachar in Urdu and Jagbani in Punjabi languages.
The newspaper was established by Lala Jagat Narain and later on his elder son Romesh Chander took over the reins. However, during the days of terrorism in Punjab, both were assassinated, in 1981 and 1984 respectively.
During those days of terrorism, Punjab Kesari worked as the newspaper of masses with its news and editorials. From then onward in a bid to provide direct and regular help to the families of terrorism-affected people, the management also established Shaheed Parivar Fund for the cause.
The newspaper has a daily circulation of approximate 33,47,000 copies which are printed from Jalandhar (since 1965), Delhi (1983), Ambala (1991), Palampur (2004), Ludhiana (2004), Jaipur (2006), Panipat (2006), Hisar (2006), Jammu (2007), Mohali (2008), Chandigarh (2009) and Shimla (2009).
