For the first time in India, this study estimates and quantifies the extent of piracy in publishing industry for which TARI developed its own methodology. It finds that piracy grew in the range of 17-20% during 2007-8 and 2011-12. The loss in sales revenue due to this is estimated to be Rs 8,334 crore in 2011-12 – up from Rs 3,885 crore in 2007-8.
