In the case of Mondelez, Aegis Media and Starcom MediaVest are battling it out for the account pegged at Rs 500 crore, while Madison Media, which is the current media agency for the brand in India, cannot participate in the pitch.

Similarly for Citibank, the pitch is open to only the brand’s global agencies which are MEC and Starcom Mediavest.
