Commenting on the latest BARC data, Varun Kohli, CEO, India News said.

I will say that we have put in a lot of hard work; all the teams, including the content team."
Speaking about impact on ratings post DAS III roll out, Kohli added, "We have gained considerable market share because we have a huge rural viewership compared to other channels and it has helped us to rise in our ranks and the latest BARC data is a reflection of this fact.”
