Reports suggest the retail industry in India has emerged as one of the most dynamic and fast-paced industries due to the entry of several new players. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the retail industry is expected to reach $1.1 trillion by 2020.

However, a majority of the retail sector today is unorganised and is made up of the kirana stores. Tapping into the opportunity to organise the sector is Bengaluru-based Jumbotail.
