The title of my project is ETHICAL ISSUES IN ADVERTISING.
Advertising can be defined as any paid form of non personal presentation and promotion of ideas, goods or services through mass media such as newspapers, magazines, television or radio by an identified sponsor
So basically advertising is a mass communications device through which companies promote or market their product to the consumer, and this enables them to make informed consumption decisions.
As now a days advertisements have a very great impact on the consumer’s behavior; it plays very important role in our Indian economy directly or indirectly. so if it become unethical it leads our society in wrong direction.
To overcome these problems certain ethical standards are set up by the government and I want to throw a light on this only.

Some times advertising draws mixed response from the public, while sometimes it becomes controversial.
