The media in India is gathering pace rapidly and gaining progressive importance among key decision-makers, according to the latest Decision-Makers Survey 5 (DMS 5) conducted by ACNielsen ORG-MARG.

DMS 5 brings together a composite understanding of the media habits and lifestyles of today's business leaders. A successor to the DMS 4, the current survey was conducted among senior executives designated as General Managers and above across India's top 500 private companies, top 100 public sector and 100 leading financial sector companies including banks, merchant bankers and FIIs.
