In 1986, there was a dire need for an affordable newspaper within the Indian community. This prompted Vijay Maharaj, CEO of The Rising Sun Newspapers to launch a free newspaper to document, profile and broadcast the latest news and advertising specials.

Presently, our free community papers are delivered to every door weekly. In KwaZulu-Natal, we serve the communities of Chatsworth, Phoenix, Verulam and Tongaat, Merebank, Overport and Mid-South Coast.

In Gauteng, we reach out to the communities of Lenasia, Fordsburg and Mayfair and Laudium. The Rising Sun Newspaper has become a powerful medium since its inception and continues to earn the respect among advertisers as well as readers.
