The Indian Newspaper Society has served Notice of Disaccreditation to five agencies w.e.f. from September 2, 2021, in view of unsatisfactory payment position and for not complying with the Accreditation Rules.

- Flags Communications and Prachi Media Consultants (a division of I Connect Enterprise) – both Delhi based ad agencies
- Shalini Publicity & Creative – Mumbai based ad agency
- Shree Padma Publicity – Pune based ad agency

INS has advised its member publications not to accord credit facility to these five ad agencies during the period of notice, while making all efforts to realise their unpaid dues.
