IRS 2009 R2: Deshabhimani, Lokmat, Malayala Manorama amongst highest grown

Despite all odds, some publications have managed to beat the decline trend that newspapers and magazines have been witnessing in the Indian Readership Survey (IRS) 2009.

10 publications that registered the highest growth rate

The list of the top 10 publications that have recorded the highest growth in their average issue readership (AIR) sees Deshabhimani (Daily) right on top. Though the base numbers of the publication is modest, the growth number seen is a significant 365,000, which takes the AIR number of the publication to 2,027,000 in this round from the earlier 1,662,000.

Lokmat follows with an AIR increase of 315,000, taking its current AIR number to 7,104,000. Malayala Manorama has grown by 300,000 and is at 9,183,000. Vanitha has also grown by 281,000 and now is at 2,900,000. The Times of India has grown by 276,000 and is now at 7,142,000.

The sixth largest growth rate is of Mathrubhumi, which has moved from 6,413,000 to 6,678,000. The weekly Mangalam follows with a growth figure of 251,000. The publication now has a readership of 855,000.

Manorama Thozil Veedhi takes the 10th place among the publications that have grown the highest – from an AIR of 362,000 in R1, it is now at 559,000.

10 publications with the steepest fall
