Itz Cash is exactly that. Innovation is at the heart of this brand and we’re looking forward to creating some breakthrough work on it.”

On winning the account, Rajiv Sabnis, President, DDB Mudra Group said, “Itz Cash is an exciting brand that has embarked on a journey of becoming a premier and innovative pre-paid payment solution company. Navin Surya and his team have decided to engage DDB Mudra in their ambitious growth plans and their vision of building a world-class consumer facing brand in the multi-service, pre-paid solutions domain. It gives us the unique opportunity to build a consumer brand in a category that is relatively nascent in India. It looks like a fast-paced and exciting road ahead.”
