MUMBAI: Dentsu Media has been awarded the media planning & buying for the entire portfolio of brands for Maruti Suzuki India (MSIL).

The mandate starts in April and was finalised following a multi-agency pitch earlier this year. MSIL is by far the largest automobile company in India and is amongst the top 3 advertisers in the country.
