“There have been reports of SoftBank looking to invest in Swiggy, but that has not happened yet.”

Swiggy’s valuation has remained nearly the same at around $3.3bn since its $1bn funding round in December 2018.

Notably, Swiggy secured the fresh funding just a month after its rival Zomato signed a deal to acquire Uber’s food delivery business in India.

The deal was reportedly valued at around $350m.

Earlier this month, Swiggy has partnered with restaurants to co-create delivery-only brands.

According to some estimates, the app delivers around 900,000 to one million orders every day.
