This is a list of the newspapers in India by readership in 2013.[1][2]

Methodology[edit]

These figures are compiled by Media Research Users Council in the Indian Readership Survey (IRS) 2013. This data is based on sample survey and is modelled on internationally accepted annual sample spread. The IRS is the largest continuous readership research study in the world with an annual sample size exceeding 2.56 lakh respondents.

This list may not give the correct hierarchy of newspapers by daily readership as the credibility of the IRS has come under the scanner after 18 top media houses of India rubbished its report for 2013 and called it flawed (Read report here). The 18 media houses are Jagran, Bhaskar, India Today, Ananda Bazar Patrika, Lokmat, Outlook, Daily News and Analysis (DNA), Sakshi, The Hindu, The Times of India, Amar Ujala, The Tribune, Bartaman Patrika, Aaj Samaj, The Statesman, Mid Day, Nai Duniya and Dinakaran.
