If the hours of load shedding increase from current 14 to 16 hours a day, the advertisements will drop by 60 percent, according to immediate past president of Advertisement Agencies Association of Nepal, Nirmal Raj Poudel. Ranjit Acharya, chief executive officer of Prisma Advertising, said that due to the load shedding, the agencies have reduced the ads to television by one half already.
