Open Magazine

Music label Saregama’s board of directors are considering a demerger of the publication division of Open Media Network Private Limited, which publishes OPEN Magazine,  the company informed via a notification on the Bombay Stock Exchange.

The company said that the board is meeting on December 28 to consider the proposed demerger.
