Maiya Publishing is a boutique publishing house established in 2012 by Dipika A Khaitan when she was in the process of publishing her first book – the biography of her mother, the legendary south Indian actor, late Smt T. Krishna Kumari. Through the process of working on her own book, Dipika realised she could extend her vast database to help other new authors as well. 

Maiya Publishing has since become a one-stop solution for authors who want to have absolute control over their books, becoming one of the younger and more popular publishing houses in India. Ultimately, her wish is to change the way publishers think of authors and vice versa. The new-age startup is now a fast-growing name in the world of publishing in India, and helps authors publish their dream book. 

An alumni of The Valley School, Bangalore, Dipika A Khaitan is a non-conformist and likes to look at things through a unique lens. Dipika has a world of cumulative experiences in her career of over 20 years, which includes marketing, media and human relations roles in corporates and MNCs, and her own interior design enterprise. 

Her father, the late Ajay Mohan Khaitan, former editor-in-chief of the Indian Express group of publications, hails from the legal family Khaitan & Co, Calcutta. Her marriage into the Maiya family that has run the heritage restaurant chain, Mavalli Tiffin Rooms (MTR) since the 1920s in the city, has only further widened the sphere of her network and knowledge of the business. Dipika credits her family for inspiring her to direct Maiya Publishing towards becoming one of the top publishers for new authors in India. Dipika is also part of several business networks like FICCI – FLO Bangalore chapter, FICCI FLO book Club ( core team), Swayam & investment group – Millennium Mams, Kokotta. 


Maiya Publishing creates e-books, print books, customised books, photo books, and books on demand. The company, which is emerging as one of the top publishers in India, helps authors publish their dream book by connecting them with the right editors, photographers, designers, and printers based on the author’s genre of work, and preferences.
