Indian Express Group’s Loksatta website became the undisputed leader among the Marathi news publishers in India with 13.4m unique visitors (UVs) recorded in December 2020.
According to the latest comScore MMX report, the website registered 12 per cent growth in the quarter ending December 2020. The flagship Marathi news brand of the Indian Express Group raced ahead of the top five regional websites like News18 Lokmat (-8 %), ESAKAL.COM (-9%), LOKMAT.COM (-15%) and Maharashtra Times (-60%).

I congratulate the entire Loksatta editorial team for ensuring that the site offers relevant, timely, verified news and updates to the Marathi diaspora globally. We will continue to invest in our editorial teams to offer better experiences and wider coverage to our readers,” he said.
