It has 19 editions in seven states and one union territory covering 167 districts.[citation needed] It has a circulation of around two million copies.[1] The 2013 Indian Readership Survey reported that, with 5.510 million it had the 12th-largest daily readership amongst newspapers in India.[2]

Amar Ujala was founded in Agra in 1948.[citation needed] In 1994, Dainik Jagran and Amar Ujala shared nearly 70 per cent of the Hindi newspaper readership in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Amar Ujala sold 4.5 lakh copies through its five editions.[3]

Amar Ujala publishes a 16 to 18-page issue daily and also supplements focusing on matters such as careers, lifestyle, entertainment and women

In 2015 the newspaper's managing director, Rajul Masheshwari, announced in a press release that it was entering the "rural events and activation" market, saying that “Amar Ujala is not just a newspaper. It is also a change agent." The intention is to hold short events in several towns that would bring together significant participants in the local rural economy with larger agriculture-based service businesses and government agencies.[4]
