Karun Arya, lead - communications, South Asia , Uber, said, "We'll be doing more of the traditional advertising in India. We are moving beyond digital. We've done some forms of traditional advertising in a few markets globally, but that's been on a smaller basis. This is the first market, (where) we'll be exploring traditional marketing across different media."
 
While this campaign has been done in-house, Arya informed that the technology-based service provider has just conducted a pitch process for its advertising agency. A decision is expected in a 'couple of weeks'.
