10th Anniversary of Corporate office at Mehta Publishing House

India’s largest and the most loved Marathi publishing house, Mehta Publishing House celebrates its 10 years in its Sadashiv Peth, Pune corporate office. Since its inception in the year 1976 by Mr. Anil Mehta, we began publishing in October 1976 with Malavarchi Maina, a collection of short stories by Dr. Anand Yadav, being the first in the list. This was the time when Mehta Publishing House was located near Perugate Police Station in Pune. A humble beginning from their lead to the mammoth numbers of 150 new titles every year and an active backlist of over 3000 titles and 300 reprints.

Known for its strong fiction and narrative non-fiction list, Mehta Publishing House publishes across virtually every segment including biography, travel, business, politics, history, religion and philosophy, lifestyle, cookery, health and fitness, sports and leisure, e-Books and even children’s books.

With the initial publishing of only Marathi titles, Mehta Publishing House started publishing the Marathi translations of books from all genres from other Indian languages like Bengali, Hindi, Kannada and Gujarati along with English. Apart from these, we have also published the English as well as Marathi translations of original writings in Korean as well as Japanese languages.

Apart from being the trendsetters in Marathi, Mehta Publishing House has recently forayed into the publishing of English books with initial 40 titles across various genres like biographies, self help, motivational, cooking, health and fitness, humor, lifestyle, fiction, relationships etc.

After thirty seven years of hard work and commitment Mehta Publishing House is the proud receiver of Sahitya Akademi Award & Marathi Sahitya Parishad Award. We have won an award for the Excellence in Book Production by The Federation of Indian Publishers. We have been felicitated by the Pune Municipal Corporation in 1991 for our tremendous contributions in Marathi literature. Mehta Publishing House is also a receiver of the Distinguished Publisher Award for 96-97 from The Federation of Indian Publishers. We are also the recepients of the "V.P. Bhagwat Award" in 1996-97 which is the most prestigious award in the Marathi book publishing. Our founder CEO, Mr. Anil Mehta has served as the Ex-President of Marathi Prakashak Parishad along with being the Ex-Vice President (West) Federation of Indian Publishers.

But all this couldn’t have been achieved without the constant unending love and support received from all our authors, translators, proof readers, editors, associates and ofcourse, our readers who have been selfless with their support to us throughout.

Thank You all and Happy Reading !!
