About 4,13,100 listings were added (net) to the database during the quarter. Out of total listings, 17.9 million listings were geocoded as on December 31, 2021, up 4.1 per cent y-o-y.

Active paid campaigns at the end of quarter stood at 437,335, drop of 3.6 per cent y-o-y and up 1.5 per cent q-o-q.
