The revenue of the company has grown by 14.4% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) from FY16 to FY21 mainly due to its growth in metropolitan cities on account of the rise in demand for ride-hailing services among office commuters.

This has restricted the usage of ride-hailing services such as cabs and bike taxis for daily commutes in India.
