Thru Agencyfaqs

"That Hindi dailies continue to be highest-read publication among all dailies did not come as a surprise.

What came as a mild shock was that even Marathi dailies are more popular than English dailies, as per the IRS round 2 reports. One is not sure about the advertisers but sociologists are clearly going to love this.

Hindi dailies with a combined readership of 5.74 crores are clearly the rightful claimants of the number one position, while Marathi dailies have a collective readership of 1.82 crores in comparison to English dailies, which have a total readership of 1.67 crores."
