History[edit]

Circulation[edit]

According to the Audit Bureau of Circulation, circulation figures released in December, 2017, Sakshi is the second largest circulating newspaper in Telugu states (Telanagana and Andhra Pradesh) after Eenadu with a circulation figure of more than 1.09 million.[citation needed]

Sakshi began with 23 editions published simultaneously from 19 cities (in then Andhra Pradesh) along with the four metropolitan areas of Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore. This record was acknowledged by the Limca Book of Records. Sakshi was the second newspaper in India to publish all of its pages in colour. Sakshi is now available online every day with all of its editions along with the regional editions.[citation needed]
