The TRP scam surfaced in October last year when BARC filed a complaint through Hansa Research Group alleging that some television channels, including Republic TV, were manipulating their TRP numbers.
BARC measures the viewership of TV channels. The TRP or "television rating point" indicates what percentage of the program's target audience watched it. A higher TRP suggests a larger audience, making the channel a favorite for advertisers. It is being described as part of a 500-page WhatsApp chat with the Crime Branch of the Mumbai Police.
