–  In the same month, Ekstop had also raised investment from Ronnie Screwvala’s Unilazer Ventures in return for 25% stake.

– Bangalore-based BigBasket had raised $10 million from Ascent Capital in March 2012 and is reportedly in talks to raise a new Series B investment of $40 million-$50 million in the next three-four months.

Besides this, there’s Bangalore-based ZopNow which has investors like Times Internet, Accel Partners and Qualcomm Ventures and Delhi-based AaramShop which offers online grocery shopping by tying up with mom-and-pop grocery stores for orders.
