Earlier, the High Court had stayed the publication of Dinik Bhaskarâs Ranchi edition after its co-owner Sanjay Aggarwal filed a petition in the honourable court stating that he had not given his approval for further expansion. After the stay order passed by Judge Muralidharan on 27th August, the newspaper was being published from Jamshedpur.
On the other hand, Sanjay Aggarwal is reportedly moving to Supreme Court in this matter.
Jharkhand is the 12th state that is now covered by Dainik Bhaskar Group including Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Chandigarh, Punjab, Maharashtra, Haryana, Uttrakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi, thus covering 36% of geographical area of India. Ranchi edition is the 49th edition of the group.
The group soon plans to expand further with the launch of Jamshedpur and Dhandbad editions in Jharkhand and launch of Bihar in early 2011.
