However, it also received an undisclosed amount of investment from its existing investors Tiger Global Management LLC and  Accel Partners, that later revealed its valuation to the amount of $850 milion.

Flipkart has a wide range of products comprising toys, electronic gadgets, books, perfumes and computers.

“We are planning to diversify and will add apparel to our product list on offer,” informed Binny Bansal to Small Medium Entrepreneur magazine.
