Advertising ban ! Will it work in India?

Posted by Rahul Narula on August 27, 2008

After reading a recent news item about Apple iPhone ad been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority in UK I wondered if this happened in India around 90% of the ads would have to be banned just for the same reason of “misleading consumers”.

I even wonder if India even has such an authority in place. I am sure it will surely be existing but wondering what its function would be except sleeping.

    There’s ASCI, and they advertise their powers… but seeing the state of advertising in the country, I guess they themselves could be sued for misleading consumers 😀
