The other advertising agencies which pitched for the account were Mudra Communications, Lowe Lintas, Leo Burnett, Saatchi & Saatchi, FCB-Ulka, MaCann-Erickson and Madison Communications, an official release says. HTA has also won the Godrej Appliances' refrigerators business and the Frito-Lay India account recently.
