IRS Q3 2010: HT overtakes DNA to claim second position in Mumbai

Hindustan Times has become the second-largest read English broadsheet in Mumbai, overtaking DNA in terms of Average Issue Readership (AIR) as per the results of the Indian Readership Survey (IRS) Q3 2010, which were declared on December 2, 2010. The Times of India remains the No. 1 English daily in Mumbai.
