NDTV is in preliminary talks with some parties to sell the TV channel. Interestingly, Baba Ramdev, is among the interested parties and he recently had a preliminary discussion with some stakeholders regarding the acquisition of the channel.
In the fiscal year 2016-17, NDTV’s revenues dropped from Rs 396.03 crore to Rs 368.32 crore during the first three quarters.
What would this mean for media businesses? Will it lead to (further) polarisation of media? Can an independent media business ever exist?
