We can't say that all the advertisement cheat people so I think banning advertisement is not a good idea.

Advertising is a way through which people come to know about various things in the market.

Yes, there are some people who advertise their product by cheating its customer. But this does not mean that we should ban all of them.

I think there should be a committee for the advertisement purpose which could check if the advertised content is actually real or not. In this way, people will not get cheated and there will also be no need to ban the advertisements.

Advertisement also needs certificate before its release. It should not tempt the people by untruth value of that product. And their sentence must be clearly stated that offers & other messages. Any condition must be disclosed on ads. (Ex: exchange your old gold without lose of even single milligram) This is false statement. It must convey clear statement without temptation. (another ex: you will get fairness in 7 weeks) We won't get it even after 70 weeks. This kind of temptation ads & false ads must be banned.

Genuine advertisement we need for awareness & product sale.

I would like to share few points about "Are advertisements should be retained or not?".

In my point of view, the advertisement is good for us, because it give us basic information on the product. It is the medium between customers and sellers. It does not force the customers to buy the product, these depends on the customer's mentality they agree or not. Sometimes it works as a platform of mass awareness and advertisements are very much useful in mass communication. Few times they provide us wrong information, but it is not a solution to banned the Advertisement.

Finally, I conclude that advertisements should be retained but should canvas its object in a truthful manner.

Hai friends.

In my opinion, advertisement spreads the awareness about the products available in the market to customers who ready to buy the products. And ads just give you insight about the product it doesn't force you to buy the product.

Finally, I conclude advertisements are good for the customers and banning of ads is the not solution.

In the era of science, we need many products and facilities. But how?

An advertisement is the only way to get information that through many sources. It's true that some companies are using unnecessary and false information and things to get attentions of the customers. These should not be banned but the government should control over these companies to not misguide the people.

Whether it does not force but liable for that. For our security of life, we should watch/listen to advertisements but inspire them only by self-satisfactions.

Banned something is not the only way to get rid of something.

Good morning,

As per my perception, Advertisements cheat people on daily basis. In the age of throat neck cut competition, all organization wants to go ahead and be strong in the market compared to other. For doing this they fool people by advertisement. The advertisement is the medium of exploring you are a product to the consumer. All companies do this. But for showing their product better, they use false advertisement. Like fairness, the company does advertisement of being fair after 4 weeks. It is completely false according to science. Toothpaste and toothbrush company do advertise of white teeth in a couple of weeks. So government should ban false advertisement.

Hello friends,

My opinion is not to ban the advertisements because they are the medium which makes us know the new products availability in the market. Instead of showing the features in advertisements it should rather focus, how the product is helpful to the user.

Coming to the case there may be only a few companies which make the false advertisements. Instead of believing in the false advertisements make sure about the product before having the product.

In my point of view, advertisements are essential in our life. So that we can get aware of the things that are available. But nowadays advertisements are made in a way to attract the viewers and many of it doesn't even have any information about the product. And some are even fake. So it would be better to have an organization like censor board to provide permission for the release of any advertisement by verifying the things that are told in the advertisement are true. And to forbid the ads that don't have any essential information.

In my opinion, it should not be banned because it gives us latest information about the new product coming in the market.

Suppose we have a particular thing & we want to upgrade ones but it's not there so, just through the ad we get aware of it.

If we say that information can be gained from other sites also so, do you think that people have that much of time to search new product in the market, he/she just with TV and in between it comes they get aware of it.

We say that it lures people into impulsive spending, no It's not because we get attract towards the product so, it's our fault.

Yes totally agree. Advertising is awful especially when they show on TV. Like naptol company which shows something and sending you something else. When you trying to refuse this cheating. They not allow you to write and value their service online and after writing directly via email they trying to play silly shameful game as for example your spelling of your name is not as your Bank account. Which is totally silly because you already got the product in your home. Address. Your tell no. You already returned and have receipt in your hand then how it's possible to be a mistake in one letter difference in your name. Tessa's it's possible because they do mistake from first place and the guy who sits there to take your order via phone couldn't hear me correctly. And here their silly shameful game starts to refuse even for small amount of money that you paid. And they can't return or refund because there is no control to how they can easily cheat people.

Hi friends,

Advertisement is the only way of communication between the company and its customers.

According to me advantages of ads overshadows its disadvantages. Many informative ads like Polio, tobacco ill effects, rural development are being featured on television, which provides those information which a layman would not be knowing but, is beneficial for them.

And I don't agree that ads can mislead customers as ads just gives you insight about the product, it does not forces you to buy that product or avail that service and customer's are not so foolish that they will follow the ad blindly.

So, banning the ads is no solution. It's just customers should choose wisely that which product they should buy after watching it's advertisement.

Thanks.

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.

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.

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.

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 !

Hi friends.

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.

I think advertising about the products is just a medium to attract the consumers. Advertisement always show the good things about the product and don't give any information about the product's side effects or harmful effects. It is just a money making task rather a source of information.

Advertisements should be considered only as a source of information. And it is only a medium to reach people. It depends on how we people take it. We should be wise enough to think about the product and take good decisions.

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.

According to my opinion adverstisements should not be banned. As we know very well that there were two sides of a coin so do advertisement does. The positive impact of advertisement is that it acts as the medium of communication between a company and the common masses. In this fast world people don't have the time to search for a product's details but a 30-50 seconds ad make us aware of not only the product's quality but also the technology it is providing us. I think common masses are nt so foolish that they should be easily cheated by this ads. Again the ads made by renowned companies like bajaj, herohonda, tata are not making vague ads as we know the quality of products they deliver to us. Again the ad made by tourism department of government of India endorsing amir khan showing the hospitality of India to foreigners is it cheating people? again certain ads also proved to be a boon of social awareness like eradication of polio, aids awareness, sarbha sikha abhijan. Recently the ads made by tata tea help to create awarness about discouraging bribes. Again shikha abhijan ads help to educate millions of poor girls.

So I think advertisement are not a bunch of lies.

Hi friends.

Advertisements never fool the people infact there are some advertisement Like Tobacco Chewing is injurious to health they are highly appreciable because younster's are more grasped by TV and Add so if they watch once these kinds of advrtise there even chances for them to change slowly.

And ads like HIV, ESIC info are made for people evn at the rural areas so that they would benefited polio droops and all is explained by celeb like Mr. Amitabh so people would keenly watch those and get beneficial.

But there are sum add Like Condomns And another Deo's rubbish add which parents cannot watch in front of small children these should be aired only after 11pm and not on the family channels.

Advertisement is the legalised form of lie-ing.. But it is about an individual's mind set to believe those lieing... The products come to the market with such advertisements are for getting the customers' intrest in buying those product.. Every customer should know the purpose of the product... He should not rely only on the advertisement.. Banning is not the only way to stop those advertisement.

Advertisements are important not only to the companies but also the the consumers. We can't go directly to all the companies and inquire about new products. Advertisements do it for us. We not only know about a single product bit also all the substitutes and competitors of that product.

Banning advertisements would serve no mans purpose. Instead they should be regulated and moderated such that deceiving advertisements don't reach the customers.

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.

If they don't know knowledge about products then shopkeepers easily cheat those people. Illiterate people doesn't know about the how to use the products.

It is nice to see lots of my friends are against the advertisement, once advertisements are good & created awareness among people but now days i can't find any advertisement been more productive and that help people, now days they are creative those guys can go for a movie making instead of spending their creative in advertisements, there is no need for creativeness in making ad's, of course people will be attracted but the message is not clearly conveyed, i would say government advertisements are better than those creative stuff...
And one main thing "conditions apply", these are wrong ways to guide people into a man hole..
