Automobile marketplace unicorn CarDekho, transformed its subsidiary CarDekho Financial Services into Rupyy, as a fintech platform. Rupyy, which is a digital lending platform, will offer a paperless loan in a matter of a few minutes. Further, it will offer a slew of financial products including new car and used car loans, two-wheeler, personal, and car loans, among others.
