The Telegraph will seek to make the paper available in all places where English language reading audiences resides. “We have chalked out a high decibel 360 degree integrated communication strategy to make people aware about the morning availability of The Telegraph and to generate trials,” Mukherjee added.

Speaking on the ad-edit ratio of the newspaper, he said, “As a new edition, we intend to grow in scale, size and impact. This will generate options for our advertisers to connect with a relevant audience in mind. We do not have any particular ratio in mind as of now.”

On future expansion plans of The Telegraph group, Mukherjee said, “The Telegraph has always pursued a focused expansion strategy in the East.
