GEARING up for the coming cricket season, LG Electronics India has kicked off a consumer promotion "World Cup Pass Chahiye" offer.

The company has earmarked a budget of Rs 35 Crore for the campaign running from January 5 till February 28, 2003.

We are targeting to achieve a sales turnover of Rs 920 crore in the period (January to March 2003) which will amount to a 60 per cent growth over the same period last year."
