The RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group said on Wednesday that it has acquired a majority stake through a combination of primary and secondary transaction in Editorji Technologies Pvt Ltd, a video-based news app started by journalist Vikram Chandra.

Launched in 2018 , Editorji is a digital news player, primarily in current affairs news content. It delivers news in two languages – English and Hindi and across three formats of video, audio and text formats.

Airtel and HT are existing investors.
