This award ceremony is conducted annually by Business Today in association with the auditing firm, KPMG.

Talking about the growth of fintechs in India, S.S Mundra firmly stated that disruption, innovation, and competition will be key for fintechs when it comes to the banking sector. BankBazaar was indeed a clear winner in the lending space (There was no doubt about it, was there?).
