Today, it is the only newspaper to reach every corner of Bengal and covers all 23 districts of the state. It is also published by Patna, Bhubaneswar, Kolkata and Ranchi. Keeping up to today’s time Sanmarg is equally established in both print and digital media. For the last one and a half decades, the 'Ram Awatar Gupt Pratibha Puraskar', has endeavoured to promote Hindi as the true official language of our country, by encouraging students, teachers and educational institutions who have excelled and done exceptional work in the language. Students have been provided scholarships to study Hindi, at a higher level. Ruchika Gupta, Director, Sanmarg & Trustee, Sanmarg Foundation said while speaking to the media that the approach and eligibility criteria have been modified in light of the pandemic but the response has been overwhelming with entries pouring in from all across the nation.
