Yojana is a monthly journal devoted to the socio-economic issues. It started its publication in 1957 with Mr. Khuswant Singh as the Chief Editor. The magazine is now published in 13 languages viz. English, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Assamese, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Odia.
Many specialized newspapers and magazines on economic issues are catering to the needs of readers in urban and big cities especially in SEC ‘A’ and ‘B’. The reach of economic newspapers and magazines to smaller towns is limited.
Yojana tries to reach people of SEC ‘C’ and ‘D’ who are in semi-urban areas, in their respective languages. Although Yojana is sponsored by government and is an official venture, it is in no way restricted to expressing the government views alone.
It attempts to give praise where praise is due and criticize with constructive purpose. Yojana gives different shades of opinion and views on any issue and thereby presents a balanced picture.
