Mint is an Indian financial daily newspaper published by HT Media, a Delhi-based media group which is controlled by the K. K. Birla family that also publishes Hindustan Times. It mostly targets readers who are business executives and policy makers. It has been in circulation since 2007.
Of the five business dailies published in India, Mint rose to the number two position immediately after its launch and has remained there (behind The Economic Times ever since. It publishes a single national edition that is printed and distributed in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Pune, Ahmedabad and Chandigarh. Unlike most mainstream newspapers from India, Mint is not published on Sunday. It instead offers its readers Mint Lounge every Saturday, a weekend magazine focused on intelligent lifestyle, fashion, food, books, science and culture.
Mint's editorial coverage and its style of presentation is noted for its refreshing clarity and accessibility - facets that were uncommon in business journalism from India. Shortly after its launch and in years thereafter, competitors continued to imitate Mint's innovations.
It is India's first newspaper to be published in the Berliner format. The former editor of the Wall Street Journal India, Raju Narisetti was the founding editor of Mint until he stepped down in 2008. Narisetti was succeeded by Sukumar Ranganathan, who served as editor till 2017.
In 2014, Mint and the Journal ended their seven-year editorial partnership 
In 2017, former editor of Khaleej Times Vinay Kamat was appointed as Editor, replacing Sukumar Ranganathan.
In November 2020, Sruthijith Kurupichankandy, better known as SK, was appointed Editor-in-chief.
Mint began in collaboration with The Wall Street Journal on 1 February 2007, with the Journal's former deputy managing editor, Raju Narisetti as its founding editor.
In 2016, Mint changed from the Berliner format it popularized in India and became a broadsheet. Mint also publishes Mint Lounge as a Saturday cultural edition.
After struggling in the initial years, the Livemint website is now the second most read business news website in India, behind The Economic Times. After HT Media Limited acquired VCCircle from News Corp in 2020, the Livemint website also shares content with the VCCircle and TechCircle websites. The three websites have sort of become one product, though they still operate independently as well. The Deals, Tech and Startups page on the Mint newspaper routinely gets content from both VCCircle and TechCircle.
