Ltd., a 100% owned subsidiary of Condé Nast International.[3][4] Condé Nast gained 100% ownership after regulatory changes in 2005 permitted 100% foreign direct investment in non-news and current affairs publications.[5] GQ was the second magazine released in India, after Vogue India, that is 100% foreign owned.[6][7] Condé Nast India is based in Mumbai and also has an office in New Delhi.[8]

The magazine was launched with the October 2008 issue, which was unveiled by Condé Nast on 29 September 2008.[5] The cover, shot by Pascal Chevallier, featured Saif Ali Khan and Katarina Ivanovska on the regular cover, and Yuvraj Singh, Lisa Haydon, Arjun Rampal and Ujjwala Raut on the gatefold cover.[9]
