About DK India

DK India was established in 1998 in New Delhi, to provide creative support to DK’s publishing activities, primarily to the Publishing divisions in the UK. The initially small team has developed into a 190-strong central component of DK's global business, headed by Aparna Sharma, Managing Director.

The creative teams in Delhi are structured to mirror UK’s divisions, with dedicated teams handling Knowledge (Adult reference and 9+), Children’s, Travel titles, absorbing work from Life and Licensing departments. From new title origination to liaising with authors and consultants, and project managing titles, the Delhi teams work closely alongside their UK colleagues with creative inputs across book lists. Delhi also handles a range of tasks that contribute to the robust backlist and co-editions – auditing the files, font updates, template creation, designing pages to new formats. In addition, Specials and Customs are adeptly picked up and delivered efficiently and the Digital team is solely responsible for converting pre-approved titles to epubs.

Along with design and editorial teams for the different divisions, centres of excellence like Picture Research, Production Editorial, DTP for technical support, Cartography, Jackets, and Publishing Operations support across all teams not just in Delhi, but globally. 

In 2013, DK India started its own publishing list, creating books on and for India, with a strong global resonance, contributing to DK as a local brand. The books delve into a variety of subjects – from India’s rich culture and heritage, to general reference titles for both adults and children, nature, food & drink, fitness, biographies, science, and business.
