The Flipkart sale will see offers on products across categories like fashion, smartphones, electronics, smart televisions and home decor.

"We have expanded warehousing capacity. We have also added mom and pop stores as partners to ensure smooth last mile delivery," she said.

Interestingly, Flipkart's sale comes just after US-based rival Amazon's sale, something Ravichandran said was just coincidence. The Amazon sale started on May 11 and will last till May 14.

Both companies are aggressively investing into the Indian market, expanding their infrastructure and platform to bring more sellers and shoppers on board.

In April, Flipkart received a funding of $1.4 billion from eBay, Microsoft, and Tencent, while Amazon has also pledged investments worth $5 billion into the Indian market.

According to a Google-AT Kearney report, the number of online shoppers in India is estimated to grow 3.5 times to touch 175 million by 2020, from 50 million in 2015.

Also, e-tailing is expected to drive 25 percent of the total organised retail sales of $240 billion in India by 2020, as per the report.
