The funds raised will be used to expand its operations in more Indian cities. Previously, the company had raised $1 million in a series-A funding round.

Unlike other eCommerce sites, edabba.com intends to make e-commerce inclusive by setting up physical contact points in ‘trusted’ established local stores in B and C class cities with  a hybrid model – ‘brick & click’. It ties up with various offline retailers on the website and uses their infrastructure and reach to sell products and services. Currently, edabba operates in Uttarpradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Orissa, Delhi, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, Bihar, Goa, among others and has 416 trust points.

Jet Airways, an Indian airline company, has launched its Android app, which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, reports AndroidOS. The app allows users to search & book flights, access the JetPrivilege Loyalty Programme, check flight status, and get flight notification.

According to the publication, many features such as web checkin are not currently working on the app, which we believe is the single most useful feature after search & book flight.
