We have exponentially increased our focus on Digital and Television which is validated by the game changing numbers that we’ve achieved. During the counting day , our website achieved 10 million + visitors, 43 million page views while our ABP Live app achieved a milestone of 1.5 million active users. With these record breaking numbers, we’ve successfully reset the benchmark in digital space. Time and again numbers have proved that in case of events of national importance whether elections, Ram rahim case,Mumbai floods etc ,ABP News is the go to news channel of viewers. This success is result of our adaptive business initiatives and extensive editorial coverage especially during Kaun Banega Mukhyamantri- which is the highest recalled election programme in the country.
