Last year the number of registrations was 2X of the CAT applicants and this was huge. This year's competition is more inclusive, welcoming individual participants and offering substantial rewards, including internships and job opportunities at Flipkart. It's a unique platform where innovation, skill, and opportunity converge, setting the stage for the next generation of tech leaders."
