Information on the company’s shareholders was gathered through the annual returns available at the Department of Registrar of Companies. The most recent data was available for the year 2017. While the Media Ownership Monitor research team reached out to The Capital Maharaja Organisation by formally requesting for the company’s information on 20 July 2018, the company did not respond to the aforementioned request.
