Flipkart has announced its Republic Day Sale just a day after arch rival Amazon revealed the dates of the next edition of its Great Indian Sale. No surprises for guessing, the two e-commerce sales will clash: the Flipkart sale will begin on January 21 and end on January 23, while the Amazon sale will begin the same day but end on January 24. Popular products such as smartphones, TVs, laptops and other electronics will be available on discount in the Flipkart sale, along with deals on fashion and home décor products.
