Loksatta (Lōksattā) is a Marathi daily newspaper in Maharashtra, India. It is published by The Indian Express Group, and was launched on 14 January 1948. Loksatta is published out of Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Ahmednagar, Aurangabad, and Delhi.

History[edit]

Established in 1948, on the Makar Sankranti day, Loksatta gained notability through coverage of Mahatma Gandhi's assassination and subsequent developments. The founder of the Indian Express Group, Ramnath Goenka, remained dedicated to Loksatta.[1]

After remaining the largest circulated standard Marathi daily for many years, by later 1990s Loksatta saw competition from newer dailies like Maharashtra Times and Navkal. By 1997,it only had a circulation of 400,000 in Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur combined.[2]

However circulation increased in the 2000s after changes which included addition of various supplements and adding several new cities for local editions.[3][4]
