What is TRP Scam Case?
Hansa Research Group filed a complaint with the Mumbai Police. They stated that some channels were rigging the TRP ratings. They claimed that some channels were paying the households to watch their channels and therefore, increasing the TRP.
Soon after the complain, in December last year, Mumbai Joint Commissioner ordered for a forensic audit report. It stated that the ratings are being rigged at least from 2016. As a result, Republic TV was on top. Earlier this month, the Mumbai Police also reorted that they have found evidence against Arnab Goswami with regards to the TRP Scam Case.
