We are certain to further their brand strengths with LMG's team talent and tools, which will complement JLL's integrated planning and buying process. And I trust this will enable us to take the visibility of the JLL brands to the next level."

Carat Media Services, which is the group's incumbent agency, won the account in 2006. At that time, the media planning duties were retained with Optimum Media Solutions (OMS).

The Jyothy Laboratories' journey started with the launch of Ujala in 1983, achieveing a pan India roll out for the brand by 1997.
