The Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) has announced two new appointments to add to its digital expertise as part of its vision for the future. Aditya Swamy, Director of Google India, has been appointed to the board of governors of ASCI, while Sandeep Bhushan, Head of India Global Marketing Solutions at Facebook has been appointed as special invitee to the board. The appointments also mark ASCI’s fast-widening focus on digital advertising and platforms, which began last year with a partnership with TAM to monitor 3,000 digital platforms for misleading marketing claims, as well as the launch of the Influencer guidelines and influencer monitoring through an AI platform.


Said Subhash Kamath, Chairman, ASCI: “‘I’m delighted to welcome both Aditya and Sandeep to the board, this is a landmark moment. As we strengthen our roots in the digital space and streamline its functioning, it is extremely important that we collaborate with and learn from the leaders. Google and Facebook are the biggest digital players. We look forward to them helping us become a better conscience keeper of the industry.”


Added Manisha Kapoor, Secretary-General, ASCI: “Having Google and Facebook on our board is a great start to the new journey ASCI is embarking upon. It is vital for us to have a keen understanding of digital operations. We will benefit greatly from the expertise that both these companies bring with them.”
