BENGALURU: Bajaj Corp Limited spent a higher YoY amount towards marketing in the quarter ended 30 September, 2015 (Q2-2016, current quarter), but QoQ these spends were lower.

Bajaj Corp?s marketing or Advertisement and Sales Promotion (ASP) expense comprises of two parts ? Advertisement Spends (Ad Sp) and Sales Promotion Spends (SP Sp).
