There is a remarkable emergence in the economic, social and technological environment in the rural market. Every advertiser is looking at ways to reach the ‘Ru-Urban’ consumers. The journey seems very interesting, and I look forward to contributing in shaping up the revenue model for advertisers in the rural and free-to-air category on Azaad.”
