By this year-end, Flipkart Wholesale also plans to expand into categories such as home & kitchen and grocery, it said in a statement.

Recently, Flipkart secured a fresh $62.8 million investment from the Chinese internet giant Tencent Holdings.

The fund has been raised through Flipkart’s Singapore-based parent entity and is likely a part of the larger $1.2 billion round which was announced by the e-tailer in July.

The fundraise also comes at a time when the Chinese tech investors including Tencent, Alibaba and Bytedance are moving their headquarters to Singapore amid a furore in the US and India over data privacy and control issues by the Chinese government, which could potentially prove to be a national security threat.
