DNA was a part of Diligent Media Corporation Ltd (DMCL) that was incorporated in 2005 as a joint venture entity of two media conglomerates -- Essel Group and Bhaskar Group. The first DNA edition was launched in Mumbai on July 30, 2005.
Post exit of Bhaskar Group in 2012, the company is now part of the
Entertainment mogul Subhash Chandra's Essel Group, which is under pressure from creditors over Zee Entertainment Enterprises’ finances, is reportedly in talks to sell stakes in many of its businesses.
Chairman Chandra admitted in January that some bad investments in infrastructure projects and the purchase of a rival satellite TV business led to its downfall.
A news report alleged that Essel Group had links with another company that is being probed by Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) for deposits of over Rs 3,000 crore after demonetisation.
Essel Group’s merger of its direct-to-home services with that of Videocon is the other contentious issue that has the two sides fighting a legal battle.
