In its first issue, the paper stated its mission statement: We belong to no party. We cooperate with all those who strive to improve the lives of common people. We will work hard with all those who are engaged in the welfare of common people. There is no greater, more meritorious national service than this. This is democracy… We agree to ignore the good of the individual for the good of the whole, and the good of the common good for the good of the individual. One should lead to another achievement. One must lead to the other. We will work to uphold the harmony of these collective rains.

Kannada Prabha has also conducted many feature-rich experiments which are useful for reading. It was the first newspaper to introduce a daily serial novel in order to develop the reading habit and provide entertainment among the readers.
