The post-colonial era in India saw a clear dominance of British-established English dailies. The readership leaned towards a certain type of conventional journalism. And it was in this milieu that we launched Dainik Bhaskar in 1958. With its heightened Indian sensibility and attention to colloquial nuances, Dainik Bhaskar quickly became a household name. Its style of journalism was accessible, sharp and had a quintessentially local flavour. Something India related and responded to. Soon, Dainik Bhaskar became a significant catalyst of national change in news reporting.
With 46 editions across 11 states, readership of approximately 4.63 crore which includes 0.12 crore variant readers (Source: IRS 2017 TR) and a series of editorially-altered sub-editions, Dainik Bhaskar connects with India on a vast scale.
The launch of Divya Bhaskar in Gujarat was a momentous step. The Group broke the language barrier with the launch of its Gujarati daily, Divya Bhaskar in 2003.

2011 saw another foray into a regional language by the Dainik Bhaskar Group. New, independent and courageous, Dainik Divya Marathi rapidly became synonymous with the voice of Maharashtra. With its hard-hitting and bold journalism, the newspaper came to be recognised as Maharashtra's 'Only Independent Daily'. Growing from strength to strength in Central Maharashtra, Divya Marathi has 6 editions (Aurangabad, Nashik, Jalgoan, Ahmednagar, Solapur and Akola) with a readership of 30.05 lakh readers (Source IRS 2017 TR).
