Announcing the sale dates, CEO, Flipkart, Kalyan Krishnamurthy said, “Flipkart’s 10 years have been all about the Indian customer and we’ve received an immense amount of love and support over the past decade. The Big 10 Sale is our biggest by far after Big Billion Days and it’s our way of thanking customers for that overwhelming response.

He added further, “Flipkart created the e-commerce market in India when it started in 2007, and millions of customers from smaller towns and villages have benefitted by shopping with us over the years. Our innovative programs such as consumer finance, delivery and installation for large electronics, and product exchange have made great products affordable and accessible. The Big 10 sale is a commemoration of all that and customers can expect the same scale and service as they do during our flagship Big Billion Days.”
