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, Thane, Palghar, Ahmednagar, Amravati, Aurangabad and Nashik.
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.
After remaining the largest circulated standard Marathi daily for many years, by the late-90s, Loksatta saw competition from newer daily newspapers like Maharashtra Times. By 1997, it only had a circulation of 400,000 in Mumbai, Pune, Ahmednagar and Nagpur combined.
However, Circulation increased in the 2000s after changes which included addition of various supplements and adding several new city editions for local news.
