In 2006, the paper was sold to Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd., publishers of India's leading newspaper, The Times of India, along with all of its sister publications including Vijaya Karnataka.

After Bennett, Coleman & Co. took over, they closed five editions of the newspaper in September 2006 and started The Times of India's Kannada version.[1] Usha Kirana ceased.
