The BARC remote has a separate button for each member in each home. While watching the show, he has to press the button, which lets the BARC know which member of the family watched which show for how long?

Based on the same data, BARC states that the pattern of watching shows or programs among the 200 million TV viewing families is what 84 million viewers are watching and how long they prefer to watch.

These families have been divided into 12 categories in 2015 under the new Consumer Classification System (NCCS). It is based on the level of study of the main earning member in the family as well as the availability of electricity in the house to the car.

 BARC is an industry body, jointly owned by advertisers, ad agencies and broadcasting companies. The Indian Society of Advertisers, the Indian Broadcasting Foundation and the Advertising Agency Association of India are its joint honors.
