Sources informed that the latest findings were announced by comScore's co-founder and executive Chairman Gian M. Fulgoni at the second edition of digital marketing event 'ad:tech' being organized. 

Latest stats revealed, Indian users have spent nearly 34.47 billion minutes online last year, which translated to over half a billion hours.
