Our competitive edge was to meet the need gaps in any category that Flipkart has a private label play in. MarQ by Flipkart washing machines have enjoyed great customer feedback and we continue to build on that as we monitor reviews closely. Great diligence coupled with working only with the best in class partners has helped us save costs which is what we pass on to the customers, thus making aspirational products affordable to masses in India”.
