There a lot of awards and recognitions received by Mr. Bhal and among those there are Winner of Red Herring Asia Awards 2011and also E-commerce site of the year at WAT awards that took place in Jan 2012, Mumbai.
The most recognise able was In June 2011. After Snapdeal had installed 15 hand pumps for drinking water. The villagers of Shiv Nagar elected thier village’s name as Snaodeal.com Nagar to express their gracefulness towards snapdeal.
Kunal Bahl latest news is the deal with Freecharge and has made many news headlines. And surprisingly Mr. Bhal succedd to make freecharge a really good wallet application. Its used for cab payments , recharging mobiles , DTH and several other ways.
It’s not a smooth story of success but they faced defame too while Bollywood Superstar Mr. Aamir Khan’s statement took on Indian Sentiments and as a worse result of that Snapdeal faced a lot as because of Aamir khan was the Brand ambassador of Snapdeal.
So, after all the journey of Mr.Bahl was successful though there was a bit of dark patch in the way. As it’s completely accepted “failure is the pillar of success” we are none to put any questions about this.
