The company had garnered a market share of 46.9 per cent last year, Sharma said adding, the prospects for the current year seemed to be better despite demonetisation which had hit consumer spending across the country.

In November 2016, there had been an initial slowdown but sales picked up in December, he said adding retailers were showing strong adoption for other modes of payments including e-wallets.
