This is a list of the newspapers in India by readership according to the Indian Readership Survey (IRS) 2014.


These figures are compiled by media Research Users Council (MRUC) in the Indian Readership Survey (IRS) 2014.[1]

Please note that IRS estimates are range estimates and not point estimates. This implies that there is an "Error of Margin" associated with the IRS estimates and thus the estimates operate within the range at 90% confidence level. To calculate this range for any IRS estimate, visit the MRUC website > Statistical Significance.
