“Patrika extended its footprint in south with the view of creating a bridge and crossing the language barrier. We are not only consolidating our national presence further, it is a strategic move tapping on the markets that most have missed. The reach to the right people is key not quantum, as our readers are certainly the most premium business class there and we create opinions amongst the decision makers."

He added, "Also as observed by many the increasing use of Hindi in south is very promising as opposed to the common perception."
