This comes after the consumer lifestyle deals app Little raised US$50 million in July this year, from Paytm - which is backed by Alibaba - Tiger Global and SAIF Partners.

"This is one of the significant bets by GIC in the new economy space in India, besides its large backing in Flipkart. The discussions are under way and they are looking to put a big cheque in the company," TOI quoted a source as saying.
