The interactive portal features RSS feeds, opinion sharing, shopping, travel bookings, discussion forums, SMS subscription, newsletters, and e-paper.

The portal provides local news globally with detailed coverage of 50 cities across India. Patrika.com plans to have a specific domain (town.patrika.com) for every city, on which the user can log in directly and access city specific news and updates.

We are promoting the site extensively in individual cities and through careful segmentation for building traffic through our existing print network of more than 13 million readers and web space.”
