Patrika TV intends to reach seven crore Rajasthanis through its multi-platform presence. Its presence will be augmented by its online presence on Rajasthanpatrika.com and Patrika.com. This will be further complemented by social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

The television broadcast business is nothing new to Rajasthan Patrika. Besides a cable news channel, it has experimented with a cable TV network.

Patrika Group also operates FM radio under the brand Tadka FM.
