New advertising and branding opportunities on railway reservation charts and both sides of the railway reservation ticket, now in all-colour
Soon after initiating advertisements on the side of coaches in some sectors, a resurgent Indian Railways is clearly embracing advertising and branding opportunities. And what better advertising platform than the powerful railway ticket, carefully preserved and often glanced at during a long journey?
Axis Ad-Print-Media India, a Mumbai-based print media company, has bagged an exclusive two-year contract from Indian Railways to advertise on reservation tickets and reservation charts.
Here’s how it will work: both sides of the multi-coloured ticket will offer advertising and branding opportunities for advertisers. However, this will be only for long-distance journey tickets. While the tickets will be initially issued at all reservation counters of Central Railway, Mumbai, this will be later replicated in other zones as well.
