Droom, the used-car marketplace, is planning to expand to 100 cities within the next month. The company, its founder claimed, has been ahead of schedule in revenue generation and said it was a natural progression.

“We are the biggest used-car transaction platform in India and we want to continue the dominance,” said Sandeep Aggarwal, founder and CEO, Droom.
