Two days after Mayor Harcharan Singh Gohalwaria dissolved the sub-committee of advertising headed by BJP councillor Inder Aggarwal, a high-level meeting of advertising agencies with MC officials was held at Zone D Sarabha Nagar on Saturday.
MC commissioner Pradeep Aggarwal along with additional commissioner Isha Kalia met owners of ad agencies. Around 15 representatives from ad agencies attended meeting and urged MC to start tendering process at the earliest.
“MC needs to start tendering procedure at the earliest. Since more than a year, advertising revenue is nil because tenders have been given to any company. We told MC officials to start tendering so that MC and agencies both can earn revenue,” said an agency owner.
Isha Kalia said, “The advertising by-laws have been sent to government and notification can be issued anytime. Work is on last stage and tendering procedure will start soon.”
