Over the years, Urdu Times extended the area of publication and is now being published out of New York, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Miami, Detroit, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Mississauga, Montreal, London, UK, Birmingham and Manchester. Khalil-ur-Rehman is the chief editor of Urdu Times. In Canada the papers is headed by Mohammad Azam Gondal and Tahir Chaudhary in the United Kingdom. In 1980, it was a 4 page newspaper. Since there was no internet or Pakistani channels and the telephone was very expensive, to get the news Mr. Khali-ur-Rahman used to pick up the latest copies of the Pakistani Urdu newspapers from the Pakistan International Airlines' staff that used to fly with the flight from Pakistan. Most of the pages were prepared by cutting and pasting the news from the old daily Pakistani papers while the latest few news were received by telephone the day before the publication. Also, since there were no computers, Mr. Rahman hired the lone Urdu 'Katib' (caligrapher) in New York city to write the headlines.
