The transaction also involves the acquisition of certain compulsorily convertible preference shares of Flipkart by eBay Singapore, as per the notice.

Earlier this year, Flipkart had raised $1.4 billion from Tencent Holdings, Microsoft Corp and eBay Inc.

eBay will invest $500 million in Flipkart as the two firms will merge their operations in the country. As part of the deal, Flipkart will own and operate eBay's business in India.

"eBay and Flipkart have also entered into an exclusive agreement in which they will jointly pursue cross-border trade opportunities to make eBay's global inventory accessible to more India consumers," eBay had said in April.

Flipkart will continue to operate eBay.in as an independent entity.
