To mark this significant milestone, Divya Bhaskar planned a series of unique offerings for its readers. 

To begin with, the anniversary edition focused on Gujarat's development and prominent personalities under the theme, Power of Gujarat. 

Notably, it featured the first-ever publishing of Ahmedabad’s AI and ChatGPT-prepared master plan, a defining moment in Gujarat's print media history. 

Further, to delve into the rich heritage of Gujarat, a special article was presented on the inaugural speech delivered by Sri Ravi Shankar Maharaj, which laid the foundation for Gujarat’s visionary aspirations. A special six-page issue named "Gujarat's Pride" highlighted the state's triumphs, proud moments, and motivational success stories, fostering a sense of pride and appreciation among readers.

Divya Bhaskar also presented the prestigious Sacchi Vaat Bedhadak Person of the Year award, which annually honours five exceptional readers with a cash prize of Rs 5-lakh and a citation for their extraordinary contributions and inspiring efforts.

This year, the company also felicitated veteran employees who have dedicated 20 years to Divya Bhaskar with a special award and an initiative was announced to have at least one women employee in every position in the editorial department by 2024. 

To encapsulate its unique journey over the past 20 years, Divya Bhaskar compiled a digital book titled, A Journey from Readers’ Choice to Become Behdhak, and published a book called Bhaskar Parivar, featuring pictures and information about each employee and their families.
Extending the celebrations to its clients and agencies, Divya Bhaskar hosted an evening of celebration and camaraderie, while publishing three grand books titled, Navratna, Shrestha Ratna, and Echoes of Gujarat, honouring eminent personalities and dignitaries for their remarkable contributions to Gujarat and the country. 
As Divya Bhaskar enters its third decade of operation, it continues to uphold its core editorial values of accuracy, un-biased, and truth-seeking, and remains dedicated to serving its readers with quality journalism and being an unwavering voice for the people of Gujarat.
