The growth in the Internet base in India has been exponential and rising penetration of smartphones is fueling this growth. According to a recent Boston Consultancy Group (BCG)report, INDIA@DIGITAL.BHARAT, it took 20 years from the introduction of the Internet to reach 100 million users. The second 200 million will likely be reached within three years, and a third in less than a year. In fact, the next four years will see nearly 350 million additional Internet users. The primary drivers of this exponential growth have been the expansion to small towns / rural India, increased affordability due to lower-cost data-enabled smartphones and the ever-increasing awareness of, and need for, the Internet. “It has been an endeavor of Swipe to offer lower-cost feature-rich to the aspiring youth from tier-2 and tier-3 towns, thus contributing to true digitalization of India,” says Mr. Gandhi.

Mr. Ajay Yadav, VP – Smartphones, Flipkart, said “We are delighted to announce Flipkart’s exclusive association with Swipe to launch its latest offering Elite Plus.
