“In the UK, the online company is entering Birmingham and Manchester, while in South Africa, it is setting up base in Cape Town”, "We have been focusing on expanding our geographical footprint aggressively within our current markets as well as in new markets over the past few months," Mr. Goyal added.

It has offices in the United Arab Emirates (Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah), Sri Lanka, the UK, Qatar, the Philippines and South Africa.

As part of the expansion, the company is looking at entering markets in Australia over the next few months. There are plans to increase its presence in the Middle East and expand into continental Europe, South America and South-East Asia in this calendar year, "Currently, our employee strength is 350. We plan to take it to 1,000 by the end of next July,” Mr. Goyal mentioned.
