As an Industry first, Axis My India is partnering with TAM India to launch the world’s largest one-stop consumer insights research platform, with 1 million+ respondents covering 670+ districts of India over a 12-month period.

Pradeep Gupta, Founder of Axis My India, said, "We have leveraged our inherent and historic strength of successfully executing electoral research across the length and breadth of the country for building this new service. The extent to which culture, opinion, perception changes every 100 miles in our country has made me promise to myself to create a two-way communication platform for marketers soon. Gradually, we endeavour to reach out to all the 250 million homes in India. Our past success in capturing the true voice of citizens about their preference and perceptions on governance parameters gives us great confidence in extending this expertise to provide similar insights to the brand owners in this country."
