Sixteen leading agencies had taken part in the pitch. Senior executives at REC said that the size of the business was Rs 10 crore.

The main role of the empanelled agencies would be to create a branding campaign for REC. The media mix will be executed in a phased manner. At the initial stage, only print campaigns will be introduced. Mudra and IB&W will be handling the press ads, which will appear in major national and regional dailies all over India from next week onwards. Subsequently, ads will appear in business and political magazines.

The television campaign will be introduced six months’ after the print campaign. For this, the empanelled agencies will have to make fresh presentations in three months’ time, following which it will be decided which agency will be handling the TV campaign.

When contacted, the empanelled agencies declined to comment on the account.
