According to informed sources, the four agencies that have been shortlisted are JWT, McCann-Erickson, O&M and Rediffusion.

These sources further informed that the other agencies that had participated in the pitch included Lowe, Grey, Capital, and Leo Burnett. MMTC officials, however, declined to comment when contacted.

Industry estimates put the size of the business at a substantial Rs 12-15 crore. The selected agencies will be responsible for producing promotional literature, brochures and a website for the PSU.
