Snapdeal is also set to sell its assets, including the Freecharge which it acquired two years ago. The Economic Times reported that the payment app will be sold to the Softbank most probably.

The all time rival of the Snapdeal, Flipkart was substantially losing its hold in the Indian market lately. However, under the supervision of the CEO of the company Kalyan Krishnamurthy who took the role in the January 2017 the company is emerging as the problem for the Amazon. The company already owned the other major online shopping portal in the country including, Myntra, eBay.in and Jabong.
