The growth drivers according to LGEIL product group head-NDPs, Prasanna Raghavan would be entry of the competition, demand increase because of improved technology of the offered products and lowered prices, which would be inevitable globally after Christmas during the first quarter of 2006 when stocks would have to refurbished.

Creative for the flat screen is handled by Lintas, while Group M handles the media business. Initially promotional spends will be Rs.40 million for the new offerings and depending upon the outcome, additional spends would be considered after the end of the campaign in October revealed Raghavan.
