Meanwhile, US-based Amazon will also soon start a special scheme called “Great Indian Sales” scheme. The Amazon India sales offer will open from May 11 to May 14, according to its website.
E-commerce giant Amazon’s aggressive expansion in India is expected to lead to added competition and a further rise in online shopping in the country, some analysts say.
