The company informed that it has Rs 1,000 crore in net cash and has a clear path to achieve profitability by FY24.

"The stellar business growth is a testament to the trust reposed in CarDekho Group by over 50 million visitors, over 5,000 used car loan agent partners, more than 50,000 insurance partners in over 1,300 cities and more than 3,500 used car dealers as at March 2022," said Amit Jain, Co-founder and CEO, CarDekho Group.
