Bhanu Pratap Singh Chauhan, Cluster Head – Punjab, J&K & HP, Radio Mirchi reacted, “We are delighted by the results of the Kantar IMRB car tracks. We launched with a promise to provide quality entertainment to the listeners in Chandigarh. It was a strategic decision to keep our advertising inventory low so that the focus could be on the entertainment and music that played on the station and I am very happy that the audience has responded so well to it. Our campaign with Diljit also resonated with the youth of Chandigarh and was a resounding success. We will continue to focus on providing high quality programming and have a host of exciting plans lined up.”

The research, carried out by research agency Kantar IMRB, is a form of coincidental research to check the radio stations listened to in cars. It is done not by asking the respondent which station they are listening to on the car radio but by checking the frequency displayed on the dial of the car radio. The research was carried out in 10 junctions in the tri-city area of Chandigarh, Panchkula and Mohali.
