Dainik Bhaskar becomes India's largest circulated daily

DB Corp Limited (DBCL) announced today that Dainik Bhaskar is the nation’s largest circulated multi-edition daily. This was shared by Venkaiah Naidu, Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Government of India, while releasing the Press In India Report 2015-16 prepared by the Registrar of Newspapers of India (RNI).

From humble beginnings in 1958 as a local newspaper in Bhopal, Dainik Bhaskar, the flagship publication of Dainik Bhaskar Group, has come a long way. This year, Dainik Bhaskar was ranked the world’s fourth largest circulated daily by WANIFRA in its World Press Trends 2016 report. Audit Bureau of Circulation, in its latest audit report of Jan-Jun 2016, has also ranked Dainik Bhaskar as India’s largest circulated daily.

Following this development, Girish Agarwal, Director, Dainik Bhaskar Group, said “This is truly a great moment for us. All our hard work and sincere efforts have culminated into this recognition and in being crowned the undisputed leader by RNI. We take this opportunity to thank our readers who continue to demonstrate immense trust in Dainik Bhaskar and have integrated us so strongly into their daily lives. We also thank all our associates who have supported us through our journey that started at a very modest scale. We are excited about the future and look forward to working even harder towards our mission of being a key partner and enabler of India’s socio-economic transformation.”

Vinay Maheshwari, SVP-Sales and Market Development & Brand Marketing, Dainik Bhaskar, said “This achievement is a result of our reader-centric approach, which forms the core of our editorial and operational philosophy. We are very excited and understand that as a team we need to bring even more efforts to live up to this acknowledgement. This also speaks of our endeavours to constantly bring the best quality content, create the right kind of product and promotion mix for our associates, all the while ensuring total adherence to stringent quality management systems.”

Dainik Bhaskar enjoys a readership of nearly 44 million across 14 states with 5 newspapers and 62 editions.
