Havas Media Network India has been awarded the integrated media mandate for inDrive, the mobility and urban services platform.

Following a rigorous global multi-market, multi-agency pitch, Havas Media Network India emerged as the agency of choice.

Under the leadership of Harbir Singh Rai, President-North, Havas Media India, the agency’s Gurugram office will oversee the inDrive mandate.

Their responsibilities will encompass driving the brand's offline (OOH, Radio, Print, TV) and online media strategies, aiming to enhance public awareness and visibility.

inDrive currently operates across 10 cities in India including New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Ludhiana. The brand distinguishes itself in the field of ride-hailing and aggregator services due to its unique pricing mechanism, ensuring convenience and fair pricing for consumers. Their primary objective is to minimise barriers, aid new user acquisition and foster trust and transparency by offering every user to negotiate a fare for their ride.

To achieve this, inDrive aims to raise awareness of its distinctive features among both transportation service providers and customers.
