BR Singh, VP & National Head - Circulation, Patrika Group, commented, “Patrika extended its footprint in the South with the view to creating a bridge and crossing the language barrier. We are not only consolidating our national presence further, it is a strategic move to tap 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 further said, “Also, as observed by many, the increasing use of Hindi in South India is very promising as opposed to the common perception.”

“As a newspaper, we consider it part of our larger responsibility to work towards national integration and create platforms where one can be heard and responded to,” Singh added.
