E-commerce portal Flipkart, as an answer to Amazon’s Great Indian Sale, has started the Republic Day Sale with some new offers and deals on its website. The Republic Day sale has started today, January 24 and will go on until January 26, and there are some big discounts in a few categories, including smartphones, TVs, DSLR cameras, laptops and more.
