Orient BlackSwan completes 75th year

Saturday, 04 February 2023 | SR | Bhopal

Known worldwide as an Indian institution which has consistently upheld the high standards of quality, scholarship, and the core values of ethical publishing and integrity, Orient BlackSwan traces its roots back to 1895 when British publishers Longman, Green, and Co. arrived on Indian shores. They began with premises in Bombay and then, in 1905, expanded to Calcutta. Buoyed by the rapid spread of colonial education, the company soon made its mark in educational publishing.

After India attained independence, it was officially registered as an Indian company on 7 January 1948, called Orient Longmans Limited. In 1961, the company received its first Indian Chairman. J. Rameshwar Rao took over as Chairman in 1964 and his family still runs the company.

In 2008, after the interests of Longman UK were taken over, it became Orient BlackSwan, an all-Indian company. It has since remained one of the most respected publishing houses in the country, offering a wide range of publication genres - from schoolbooks to college texts all the way to bestselling titles that retail at popular bookstores.
