IMI may withdraw promos off three Zee network channels from Jan 13

The promos were supposed to be primarily aired on Zee TV, Zee Music and Zee Cinema. According to industry sources IMI have not been able to reach a consensus with Zee over the issue of advertisement rates and may have to stop airing promos on these channels.
