The only one I know of is The Times of India, but I don't know anything about their reputation or nothing. For all I know, they may be the Fox News or MSNBC of Indian papers.

Edit: Since you're looking at economics and such, apparently they have a sister paper, The Economic Times and Wikipedia says it's 2nd to the Wall Street Journal as the widest read English business newspaper.

I live in India, subscribe to The Economic Times for (paper-version of) everyday news. It's great for economic and business related news. Others in the same category are LiveMint and YourStory(mostly on startups).

Times of India is a glimpse into another world.

Well, I've never read The Times of India myself, but I have read foreign papers and listened to foreign radio stations on the internet on and off for the past decade or so. Some of my local PBS stations will play BBC or NHK brand news casts from time to time too, which is kind of cool. All of that stuff seems like a different world sometimes, for all sorts of reasons, and it can be quite the novelty. Though a lot of the times, I think I really lack the necessary background knowledge to really appreciate the weight of some of the stories being told.
