Self-publishing platform Pratilipi has acquired India’s one of the oldest podcast platforms IVM Podcasts.

IVM Podcasts will continue to create content under the Pratilipi banner, with an even larger and more diverse portfolio of podcasts across genres. As one of the earliest movers in the podcast space in India, IVM’s content capabilities will be further amplified by Pratilipi’s extensive reach as India’s largest Indian language storytelling platform.

Pratilipi brings together writers and readers in a virtual community that instigates a dialogue on literature. Currently, Pratilipi supports 12 languages: Hindi, Gujarati, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, English, Urdu, Punjabi and Odia.

Speaking on the occasion, Ranjeet Pratap Singh, Co-founder and CEO, Pratilipi, said, “IVM’s understanding of the podcast industry, their years of experience in creating quality engaging content is uniquely complementary to Pratilipi. We believe that this partnership will revolutionise and further empower users to seamlessly access the best audio content on the move. We are certain that we will be able to create a powerhouse of podcast production.”

Amit Doshi, Founder and CEO of IVM, commented, “Having been the oldest players in the Indian podcasting industry, we are happy to partner with a company with such deep ambitions that align with our own goals. The team at Pratilipi has incredible experience in building a publishing platform and this partnership bodes well for not just our own company but the Indian podcasting space overall.”
