The big story is Amar Ujala has left Dainik Jagran behind by 62,065 copies in UP and 71,210 copies in Uttarakhand.

"Non city aspirational youth is now the holy grail of advertisers. Our product, content & marketing plan is about connecting this audience through continuous engagement process. Expansion in Hindi language readership and increase traction in advertising in the fast growing smaller towns of our footprint has helped us to reach the circulation numbers at this level” says Probal Ghosal, Director, Amar Ujala. He also adds, “Our circulation strategy has been to grow in cities with value readers at the same time reaching on to places where people consume branded/semi-branded products.”
