Hi Friends,

When We Talk About Advertisment it has Advantage And Disadvantage too.

We know that it should not be possible to banned the advertisment because arround 600 billion doller money that is spend on the only advertisment.

Advatnage of Advertisment.

1. Advertismnet Gives Us Idea and Information About Products and All So That We Can able to Differntiate Between Many Products and We Can Buy a Better Product.

2. Nowdays We Have Busy Shedule So We Can Go Everytime in The Market To Shop Something or For Information Or Ideas About New Products, At This Time Adevertisment Helps Us.

3. Most Of The People Do Not Aware About How To Use Some Products So by The Help of Advertisment they Can Understand.

Disadvantage of Advertisment.

1. In The Advertisment All Products Shows That They Are Superior So People Can Also Confused About Which Product They Should Buy.

2. Many Types of Bold and Adult Advertisment Are Not Good For Us As Well As Our Children Too.

3. As Many People Mention About The Ad of Fair & Lovely I Also With Them That They Show Color Descrimination.

I Dont Think That Is Good Either For Our Country or Either Another Country.

4. There Are Many Cases That People And Children Doing The Same Thing That Is Shown In Advertisment And.

They Got Injured And Some Cases They GoT Died Too.

So In My Opinion, Those Advertismemt Should Be Banned That Shows Nudity, Adultism, ColorDescrimination or they Create Some Other Issue.

Thank you.

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, I am Nistha Sharma from Kathmandu the capital city of Nepal.

According to me, what I feel is I don't think advertisement should be banned because there are many aspects through which people are benefited. Firstly the unemployment rate decreases and they can easily maintain their living standard, similarly, it acts as the medium of communication between a company and the company masses. Likewise, we can also be familiar with varieties of commodities with the help of advertisement. Apart from that it also helps us to aware the people through various aspects like eradication of polio, aid awareness, creating varieties of awareness by discouraging bribes. So because of this reason what I think I advertisement shouldn't be banned. I extremely agree every thing has its merits and demerits similarly this advertisement also has demerits but besides its demerits, it has tons and tons of merits which can easily cover the demerits of it so what I personally feel is advertisement should not be banned rather it should be done in a wise and in a systematic manner. Thank You!

According to me, Advertisement means public notice. The advertisement should not be banned. Everything is a good side and bad side as a human being we have to justify otherwise not only an advertisement company anybody can cheat us. Advertisement is thriving in our country. Thousands and thousands of people involved in this industry, if the advertisement businesses banned then many people will be jobless. Advertisement is the media through which we can get the information. What is the product ? How much does it cost ? It's quality we can get all information not only city area people, those are staying in the village area they also understand. Any product launch in the market if there will no publicity then nobody can understand the product then how the company will run the business. The first company has to prepare the market then they can sell their products. So according to me, it should not be banned. According to me, people want to victimize then he will victimize nobody can protect them. They have to justify what is good and what is bad.

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.

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.

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.

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 advertisements are really helpful for promoting any plans, schemes, and awareness (as Modi Government is doing), since, in villages, television is the only medium through which we can communicate to a mass folk. No issues of banning such ads.

But at the same time as every thing has its pros and cons,

Guys, if you have ever seen, that many ads based on cosmetics, deodorants, daily products show a lot of things exaggeratedly and they also display their demerits/side effects (ex:- ad showing someone smoking/drinking) in a very very small font at the bottom of the television screen, and we people can't able to read them, and hence we remain unaware of that.

So I would suggest that if they truly display the pros n cons of the product in ads, advertisements will really prove to be beneficial and should not be banned.
