The Flipkart Big Billion Sale will be on during September 20-24, and if you’re looking to buy household appliances or even apparels, then you could get some pretty good deals.
Flipkart has announced that it will be hosting its annual ‘Big Billion Days’ sale from September 20 to September 24. India’s leading e-commerce site will offer latest deals on smartphones and accessories.
What is clear, though, is that the competition between the two for market share will become more keen. Propelled by rising smartphone penetration, the launch of 4G networks and increasing consumer wealth, the Indian market is expected to grow to $188 billion by 2025 from around $16-17 billion currently.
The investment, which comes less than two weeks after Snapdeal dropped merger talks with its bigger rival, will swell Flipkart’s cash holdings to more than $ 4 billion. It is part of the financing round announced in April where Tiger Global-backed Flipkart had raised $1.4 billion from Tencent, Microsoft and eBay.

The failure to forge a merger would be a setback to Softbank Group, the largest investor in Snapdeal, as it has been attempting to engineer an all-stock deal for months
Flipkart and Snapdeal have been in merger talks since at least April as they debate the proper terms of a combination. One central issue has been that Snapdeal investors will see the value of the business cut by at least 85 percent from its peak of $7 billion.
According to reports, Snapdeal has rejected the $800-900 million dollar offer as the Board members were dissatisfied with the quoted price. Flipkart is expected to make a revised offer soon, reports say.
