NEW DELHI: To improve the quality of advertisements issued by various government departments, the Information and Broadcasting ministry is considering holding a workshop where officials will get feedback on various ads issued earlier from a panel of experts.

Officials said that after receiving the comments and views of experts on the efficacy of these advertisements, the ministry is considering inviting feedback and suggestion from the public to improve the government's ad-delivery.

"After the workshop, where experts will provide tips, the advertisements issued earlier may be put out on the Internet and comments will be sought from the people with an aim to elicit their views as well," a senior official said.
