Advertisements cheat people. It is a fact. Anyone disagree? Ban on advertisements should be a separate discussion. But needs a control over it. False claims, Hidden conditions are definitely part of the advertisements these days.

It takes very important role in in our life. All application forms for job in company come in newspaper by the means of advertisement. I always agree on this because it very simple way to sent information about anything. It always helps people to buy he products. THANKS.

Advertisements spread awareness among people about various products available in the market by describing product specifications, so consumers are able to choose among the best available. But now a days many advertisements are misleading people (for example deodorant, face-creams, inner-wears, etc. Advertisements).

To restrict such advertisements government should take initiatives such as if any misleading advertisement is broadcast ed the advertisement agency, manufacturing company and the advertising actors will be held responsible and strict action will be taken against those found guilty.

Now a days advertisement is big industry which provides lots of jobs to the people who have ability to endorse the object or who have capability to express the object in different way. So if we banned ads then all the people who lives on this industry will lose their jobs. About millions of people who are working in this industry will go to the end.

To my mind I agree with that people only they are saying that add. Is good for society. Because add is the thing that gives the knowledge about the products and things and also now a days its provide the awareness about the politics. And so on just thing like that if add are banned so when that people are open the new class shop etc how to that promote them.

According to my point of view advertisements have many advantages over disadvantages, so advertisements should not be banned. Instead of banning, government should make a board to check whether the ad is good or bad before publishing it. If the board feels that the ad is good & there is no any part that can mislead the people then it should be published.

I completely agree with the concept that advertisement is a source of information. It is the individual who needs to decide upon good over bad or advantage over disadvantage. If we know what we want in actual term then no one can fool us. I only suggest to have good insight so as to decide & not to carried away with other's opinion.

Advertisements make people aware about the the products available in the market. Though there are advertisements that mislead people, it is in the hands of the customer to check the commodity before buying. We cannot blame the advertising agencies for airing fake advertisements. Instead we as the citizens should be aware and not fall prey to any such FALSE ads. If advertisements are banned, then the customer will not be aware about the new products available in the market. In a situation where we say that India is a progressing country, banning the advertisements will lead to nothing but less of awareness and more of chaos.

Apart from this, the advertising industry is an established one. Banning this industry will lead to unemployment and the new generation interested in it will not be able to express their knowledge and ideas effectively.

AS the media is the biggest asset to highlight a news in same advertisement is the biggest asset of products for their promotions. Basically advertisement behaves like a medium to attract the customers. As we know no one is perfect all have some advantage and disadvantage.

Advantage and disadvantage are like two sides of coin. In advertisement they only show their good quality of the product they don't show side effects of the product. We can't say that total fault is advertisement. It's depend o0n our decision. How we take the decision. To select a product. I think it's good thing.

Advertisement mislead the public.

They claim discount but actually there is no discount. They increase the price and then comes to the actual price.

And they say buy 1 and get 1 free. Nothing like that actually happens they double the price of one item and then give you two.

In food the add fillers in order to increase the weight.

And you all have experienced this at least once. How do you feel when and great actor on TV. Opens a packet of chips and pick up one from the top and eat but when you buy the same packet of chip you need to dig your hand in the packet and then one chip.

Advertisement and marketing has became essential part for not only for profit organisation but also for non profit organisation. Without advertisement both consumer and organisation will suffer as consumers may not be aware about companies latest product, services or any discount policies. Mere because some of the advertisers cheated consumer it doesn't make any sense for banning it. Also consumer needs to be cautious about company's brand equity, its past performance etc.

Advertisement laws should be tighter. Some advertisements trick people illegally in buying their goods, like on television, small print and actual prices are sometimes shown too fast, and we cannot read them. Sometimes, small print says "refer to www.--.com for terms and conditions. " and most of the disclaimers are there. It rather cheats people into thinking. Do you know, sometimes there is this ad ask or search. snapdo that "you are the 100, 000 visitor!" or "This is not a joke! you are our hundredth visitor! click this. " The way to know whether this is a scam is to open the same website three four or five times, if this ad appears again, it's a scam.

My opinion is advertisement must not be band. Because in advertisements there are some bad advertisements and also some good advertisements. But we can learn from both. Even by watching bad advertisements we can know about the product or thing. So that we can allot from it.

By watching advertisements we come to know about all the products that are in the market, about the new technology has replaced the existing one. Important thing is that we can know how to use the product.

So advertisement should not be banned. Thank you.

Advertisements are an important tools of companies as people come to know about their product whether it can persist or sustain for long run period or short term period. Advertisements acts as a mean of letting know the people about the specification of various product.

I think advertising about the products is just a medium thing to attract consumers. Advertisements show only good things about the product and don't give us any in formation about the products side effects and harmful effects. It is just a money taking task rather than a source of information.

So according to me advertisements should not be banned instead consumers should not get completely attracted by the advertisements and they should be alert buying the product and make sensible choices.

Hi friends well many of you are just seeing the advent side of advertisement but according to my point of view it is being adopted by so many companies for demand forecasting. Advertisement is an important tool by which companies do come to know about their product whether it can persist or sustain for long run period or short term period.

Advertisement only acts as a mean of letting know the people about the specification of various product. Suppose if a company launch the product before first being advertised then not many consumers will be willing to buy that product. So taking all this into the consideration advertisement is very much important from all side of aspect.

Those person are including in making so they are getting job means it is also removing our unemployement but some things are also becoming cheaper day by day like ex. Newspapers have the advertisement and news so owner's of newspaper also providing in cheap rate to the general people. And it is the best medium to represnt knowledge about product between sailor and customer but one thing is bad Advertisements are being done by mostly famous hence the price of product is increasing because the fees of those.

Hi friends.

To accede to above statement will be like giving green signal to 'playing safe' in-spite of taking risks. Advertisements are made so as to make people familiar with the product and simultaneously competing with other brands of the same product.

In doing so a company may accentuate more on its positive impacts but that nowhere implies it is cheating on people. But if advertisements are banned people will not come to know about the existence of things that will make their lives simpler and better. Consumers if feel cheated then they can always raise their voice against violation of consumer rights and can seek justice !

Most advertisements and advertisers make totally false and tall claims, which is far from reality. And they call it creativity. It is nothing but lying and society tacitly grown to accept it. If the strict definition of "cheating" is taken, as is commonly defined in most countries across the world, then most advertisers and the companies would have to be put behind bars for the offence.

You cannot always say that advertisements cheat people. The companies always have a long term prospective in mind. They do the various advertisements knowing that they have to survive in the market. They are not here for a one time sell. If they cheat people by their advertisements then their products may be sold in the market for 1-2 times but after that it will be very difficult for the company to survive in the market. People will have ill feeling for their products & it will also spread to others through word-of-mouth.

Advertisements are not supposed to be banned completely. Because according to my point of view advertisements are the only form in the field of media which acts as a bridge of communication in between the producers and the consumers. Its through advertisements that the common people are been given an opportunity to know about the new technological advancements. Besides industrial promotion the media of advertisements are been adopted by the government to spread the knowledge about the new schemes formulated. The main advantage is that even the people who are illiterate are also able understand the idea through the visual presentation. Thus both the industries and the government are able to convey necessary messages to the public.

But still the government must introduce certain policy measures regarding these advertisement media to avoid over interruption to the sensational issues and also to avoid vulgar presentations. Through such limitations a healthy sustainity of advertisements can be assured to the entire public.

Advertisements are the medium of awareness whether they are for products, or services, or social issues.

Their are several categories of advertisements. Targeting emotions through advertisements is one of them. Probably common people are more attracted by this type of advertisement, and if not fulfilled, are felt like cheated.

The victim of cheating by advertisements is the reflection of unawareness. So, it is mandatory that the decisions should not be followed without looking at the actual uninfluencing part of it.

Banning is a difficult task. the companies which influence people may be following the advertisement norms and they are aware about the knowhow of rules and regulations. No advertisement has been published without sensoring.

So, it is our duty that we increase our awareness about the product or service or social issue, which has been advertised.

Advertisments, are the source of communication between the producers and consumers. They are more usful to us, than harmful. It is only through ads we come to know the about the products which are avaliable in market, they help us in making proper choices of any product which suits our requirement and also comes under our budget.

Besides the commercial ads, ads which tells us about govrnment schemes and policies, banking schemes, hospitals with modern treatment facilities etc are useful for one and all.

So according to me, ads should not be banned, instead consumers should not get completely lured by the ads, they should be alert while buying, and make sensible choices.

Hello Friends, According to my perception, Ads should not be banned at all. Though they intervene in our interest in TV shows, yet they are of great importance. A person cannot directly approach the company to take stock of the new products launched. It's the advertisement only that act as a middleman for making the new product info. Reach upto the common man.

Advertisements are not only confined to TV ads. Even the company's launch their vacancies in the form of advertisements only. It is the best, cheapest and the fastest way of making people aware of the job. SO I never perceive ads as a bane to the society.

I do agree with the statement that advertisements cheat people but should not agree that it should be banned, advertisement is just a medium to aware people about the product they are not forcing anyone to buy the product, its you who make a decision and the fact is unless n until we don't examine the product, we can't make a result.

Advertisements are the medium between the companies and their customers. Hence advertisements are very much eswsential for the customers to know about the company's new products. It is upto us to decide whether it is good or bad. In this competitive world no company can launch its product effectively without advertising.

Advertisement is the best way to present their product details clearly. By viewing these advertisement people are buying the products but they are not buying all the products that are showed in advertisements. It means they are getting the information about the products in that the people are choosing the best one according to the details of that product. If the product is best than what we are using the previous product then we are the actual losers. Through the advertisement we can know about the product so that we can solve our small problems by using that products.

Advertisements are the pull strategy of the marketing the forced the buyer to buy the things which the really don't want. They confused people about their necessaries.

hey friends,

In my view we cannot pass away a judgemental statement without deep consideration of the matter. Just one example, take a look at the advertisement by govt of india tourism department starring amir khan trying to bring up the level of citizens' hospitality towards foreigners..........so is it cheating people?

Definitely advertisements are very much essential element of marketing mix for any company ,it makes the product become familiar and gets the world closer. If today we know what the various mnc's are launching , it is a get set go on advertisements hence it would be foolish to ban the advertisement which promises in itself a booming industry with intense creativity.

Advertisements have both advantages and disadvantages .It depends on the customer how they take it .Because advertisements brings awareness in the people about particular product and all the related information and the latest technology etc.So , customer should be very careful while he buys any product .He has to inquire about the product and has to make a proper decision .

Let us suppose ,if advertisements are banned then


1)How could we come to know about what all the products that are there in the market ?

2)What new technology has replaced the existing one ?

3)How to use the product ?


The customer should not blindly believe in the persons (Brand ambassadors) rather they should effectively use their mind.He has to come to conclusion by analyzing all the pros and cons .At last he has to choose the product only if advantages are more .


One more point i would like to raise here ,that is :Government has introduce so many schemes ,so without giving any advertisements (How do people know about the schemes ?)


Now a days internet is playing a very vital role .And if any person has any doubts he can discuss in the forum he can share his views and opinions, in the same way he can know others opinion .


simply blaming others(Advertisers) does not allow us to go in a proper direction .So we should be very careful while drawing any conclusions .

In my point of you advertisement is beneficial for public.because it reveals out watever the products are available including with the branded and non branded products.it somehow influences but dont think the public is such immatura that it blindly beleives any product.so totally they can have an idea about the present market products according to their budjet

According to me advertisement has very good impact to our society as it alerts about all the recent products ,as we are talking about products. If we see practically if company is not going to advertise its product its market will be really very down wheather it may be a good product or bad product. its depends on costumer to judge a product. the same product may not be bad for all the people at same time. it makes us aware about about price of product,its usage and its purpose and we can get this if we look towards our daily awareness source about products. so i dont think advertisement cheats people.

After going through all views mentioned above. I would lile to place my opinion, I'm also utterly in favour of advertising. Though, they make the people aware what's new in the market, instead of going to the market and gathering details about different products newly launched in the market. So this thing saves our time.

And if I talk about big brands like maruti, hero honda, bajaj they never misguides viewers by the advertising because we all know they deliver quality products.

Exceptional are always there for whom we have our intelligence which help us out.

Advertising in its basic sense should be taken as a tool for marketing a product which is released for the public to use. As it acts as a medium to let the people know about the product, it is sometimes felt to be over exaggerated or is over exaggerated. I think that it is the buyers call to ascertain whether the product is worth buying and to check whether the things advertised is true in sense if they are really interested in the product advertised. It is not often true to say that advertisements are made to cheat people and take advantage of their ignorance. Advertisements don’t compel any one to buy the product but tells the customer about the product. If it is banned, the ultimate sufferers will be the customer itself. Also ban on advertisements inhibits the freedom of expression.

Hey friends

I have read almost all the reviews above. People have shared their views as to awareness and branding and means of business etc. According to me, we are living in a globalized world today, and the world today has become really closer. For this according to me, the credit goes to advertising. I agree their are many other factors that also contribute to it, but advertising has kept on its massive impact on us. Today, advertising is not just a word but a world of creativity. Today advertisements are created by a set of people to inform the world that they have something which they would like to share with the world. We see a lot of advertisements today on television, newspapers, magazines etc which makes us aware about things going around us. Goerge and Shalini and many others have shared their views on advertising but guys tell me that dont you watch advertisements? Doesnt it help you to take on certain decisions?

Advertising is a medium for companies to launch, stay and promote their respective brands in today's competitive world. Advertisements can be a great source of awareness. So advertisements should not be banned. Certain ads do mislead people but try to figure out the positive side of advertisements is what i have to say...

Advertising is a tool to reach the masses for a given purpose.If used effectively,it can prove to be a boon to achive bigger social objectives.eg.Eradication of Polio,Aids awareness,Literacy campaign etc. Also Jaago Re campaign initiated by Tata Tea is an excellent tool to creare awareness about discouraging Bribe. Shiksha campaign by P&G is helping to educate lakhs of poor girls.Every coin has two sides.So there will be some misleading or fraudulent ads.We have to use our descretion while dealing with every ad.Due delegence is the mantra and banning the ads is not a wise solution.

every one thinks that many companies advertise in order to promote their sales,if we see on the positive side they are just creating awareness about their product to customers.In order to survive and position their market advertising plays a crucial role.so companies are using advertisement as a tool of communication.and receiving that add depends upon individuals perception.so in this competitive world has become a compulsory task for the companies.companies just proceed along with the mind set of the people,as most of the people purchase products by attracting towards those adds.for ex:- how many of them are ready to purchase a product which is launched directly in the market without advertisement? may be very few.so first of all people must change their mind set instead of blaming the advertisements.

Advertising is an act of communication between the customers and a company and intended to persuade buyers to take some action upon a particular product or a brand.
It increases the consideration and preference set for the company...
So, the companies are doing ATL and BTL activites respectively to increase the awareness as well as market share in the competitive environment...

In 2010, world wide ad exp was arround 500 billion dollar and out of those 500 billion dollar 300 billion dollar spent in U.S.A.The developed country...

Advertisement may include the feature of a product or benefits of the product...
For example : Punchline of L.G. is "Digitally yours"... It is telling the feature of L.G.
and Punchline of The Economic Times is "The power of Knowledge"... which tells the benefit of the product.

So friends It is all n all useful for us...
We should not ban it.

Here after any produt or company could not survive with out the advertisement.Because the customer has to educate by the company through the advertisements. Regarding to the service industry advertisement is the best promotion tool to promote the service and can easily educate their customers about how to consume , receive and getting benifits from the service. For example, in 3G mobile service advertisements the have been showing to the customers how to receive the benefits of 3g service.

Although advertisements are really necessary in todays fast pace life where no one has much time to waste upon searching, but at the same time it must be a source of information rather than that of entertainment.

Today companies are trying to make their ads more and more entertaining instead of increasing the quality of product.

According to me a product must be popular among the masses because of its positive traits not because of the celebrity being cast in it.

If such things happen then it is not the product which need to be appreciated but the celebrity.

Advertising is now becoming a trend, if any big industry going to launch a new product or it is going to do anything for public it sould be advertised before, and sometimes it is helpful and sometimes misguides the people. I'm totally disagree with that point " people can know which product they should use and how they can use, this information is given by advertisement " because now a days advertisements are mostly of 30 to 50 seconds maximum then how you came to know all these information in this short time, and secondly how we should use the products and what are the conditions of buying them is never showed up in a advertisement.

The companies which are providing quality servise they don't advertise for these information. The only reason they are advertising is because they are big brands of industry and advertisement is now a trend.

So advertisements are advantageous in only the way they provides information about new products in the market, they can never help you choosing them which one you should buy because they only exaggerate things about their products and you can be misguided if you follow them.
