About Us


The legacy of participating in the book industry was handed down by the Late Lala Khazan Chand Mittal from the pre-independence era to the present day.The year 1974 saw the founding of Concept Publishing Company (P) Ltd. which emerged as trail blazers in academic publishing.

In March 2009, a new star appeared on the firmament of Indian publishing. Belonging to the fourth generation of the family of publishers, Devashish Mittal entered into the fray with a multifaceted programme of bringing out books on a variety of subjects. Good Times Books Pvt. Ltd. (G.T.B) was thus born to cater to a new generation of readers whose lifestyle demanded a greater awareness of the world around them.

Despite the electronic media and other attractions, books, in particular, non-academic and handy to read, have gained a readership among various age groups in society. GTB aims to fill these gaps and kindle interest in a number of hitherto unexplored areas in Indian publishing. Indigenous publishing in these new areas will offer a welcome chance to mirror Indian society today and help in promoting a better understanding among the youth in the process.

PUBLISHING PROGRAMME

Our aim is to bring to the reading public books that will entertain, inform and bring a depth of understanding of the world around us. Handy, readable books on business, management, self-help, mind, body & spirits, coffee-table, biographies and fiction will provide readers of all ages with gateways into new realms of inquiry. A glance at the categories of books that GTB aims to publish is self-explanatory. Their very Indianness will be an enabling factor in reaching out to a larger section of readers who will definitely benefit from a healthy exposure to these books. Our Present target is to bring out modest 50-60 titles each year. These publications will, in turn, provide a fillip to the promotion of Indian publishing in English which has now come into its own. Fresh and young voices can be heard and a debate can be set up in each area whose ripples will spread far and wide.

FOREIGN PARTNERSHIP 

As part of our expansion programme we will be acquiring Indian Sub-continents rights to foreign publications so as to make available the work of well-known authors from around the globe to the South Asian Market. These editions will be exclusively for this market at attractive prices.
