In second position is Siasat, which grew by a whopping 28.87 per cent, taking its AIR to 125,000 in R2, as compared to 97,000 in 2009 R1.

The Munsif, which is placed third, grew 6.84 per cent with an AIR of 125,000 in the latest round from 117,000 in 2009 R1, while Urdu Times jumped 27.96 per cent from an AIR of 93,000 in 2009 R1 to 119000 in R2, the second highest growth recorded for Urdu dailies.
