TRP of channels is electronically rated by INTAM (Indian Television Audience Measurement). There are two methods to rate the TRP one is by recording the frequency of channels of selected viewers. These frequency are later converted to channel numbers and rated.

Another much reliable method is by taking the snaps of channels and than rating the channels by matching these snaps with actual channels snaps.

However TRP are projected based on samples selected. There is always a chance of wrong ratings.

Based on the samples selection the rating are calculated for whole country.

For all channels whether entertainment, sports or news the same methods are followed.

The current rating keep changing weekly and monthly. You can see the details at INTAM (Indian Television Audience Measurement) site.
