ZEEL chairman Chandra said, “Indian economy continued to grow at a sluggish pace of less than 5 per cent in FY-2014. This has continued to put pressure on overall advertising spends which have barely touched the double digit mark. To some extent, election related spends have helped. The good part is that with a stable government, growth is expected to pick up. We expect that despite a slow economy, television media industry will continue its double digit growth.





“Fiscal 2014 was a landmark year for the television industry in many ways. On the one hand it marked the implementation of the 12 minute advertising cap by majority of the broadcasters. On the other hand, it saw the implementation of the second phase of digitization in 38 cities of the country. Also, it saw the change in television measurement metric from GRP to TVTs and the formation of a joint industry body for nationwide audience research, Broadcast Audience Research Council,” he added.
