India Ink will be edited by the The New York Times in India and the International Herald Tribune (IHT) in Hong Kong, led by lead writer Heather Timmons, who has covered business in India for the daily for the last four years.
The site would offer news and analysis about Indian politics, culture, business, sports and lifestyle, providing a "distinct perspective on the news and events that matter most to Indians and those who follow news about India, both on the subcontinent and abroad".
"India is a vibrant country with a wealth of urgent news and compelling stories," said Jill Abramson, executive editor of the New York Times adding, "India Ink is an exciting expansion of The Times's global reach."
"Expanded coverage of India is a natural fit for The New York Times and its global edition, the IHT," said Stephen Dunbar-Johnson, publisher of the International Herald Tribune.
"We are delighted to better serve our readers and advertisers in India and abroad who care deeply about news in the region," he added.
