- General info
Founded by the eminent journalist Dr. N. B. Parulekar, and established in 1932, the Sakal Media Group is the largest independently owned media business in Maharashtra. Headquartered in Pune, the educational and cultural capital of the state, the Sakal Media Group owns and operates newspapers and magazines in Marathi as well as English with a circulation across Maharashtra and Goa. The newspapers and magazines owned by the group in Marathi and English have a combined readership of over 6 million. The group also has interests in digital media, event management services, commercial printing and also runs a regional television channel.
The Sakal Media Group believes that the role of media today has moved away from being ‘an advocate of social causes’ to in fact being the facilitator or the agent of social change in itself. Knowing that these transformations cannot happen in silos, the Sakal Media Group has taken the onus to bring together all the four pillars of democracy – the Executive, Legislature, Judiciary and Media under one umbrella to work together towards social and economic transformation.
