Indian media firms are struggling to attract investors and stocks of media firms, along with manufacturing and auto companies, are witnessing a sharp decline on the bourses for the past months.

Some of the country’s largest TV and print media companies listed on the BSE are trading near their 52-week lows owing to the ongoing economic slowdown.

The stock price of Jagran Prakashan, one of the country’s largest print media groups, tumbled to its lowest in the past 52 weeks on October 14 at Rs 55.25 apiece.
