 Raghunatha Reddy, Business Head, Saral Jeevan said, “Our thoughtful experiment of being away from mainstream channels like GECs, Movies & News, which garner about 90 per cent of ratings, and offering content of completely new dimension has paid off. You got to be different, yet present something important that has been missing. This insight combined with inspiration from Indian heritage & culture given the shape to our core content; which includes Mythology, History, Folk, Modern Agriculture, Vaastu as science and Science Behind our practices.”

As per the sources, Jaideep Vishwanathan, who served as GM, Sales of West Region at Suvarna News, is going to join Saral Jeevan to head Mumbai region sales.
