As per reports count, Uber India is in the final stage of a deal that would see Swiggy, the food delivery service, acquire Uber Eats in India. Swiggy, in exchange, would provide the U.S. ride-hailing firm with a 10 percent share of its business. The company was most recently said to be valued at $3.3 billion, which followed up around billion-dollar led by Naspers including new backers Tencent and Uber investor Coatue.

The daily, citing sources, said Uber has also been in discussion with Gurugram-based Zomato for a deal, as both rivals compete for market leadership in this space. According to the publication, the transaction will be done as a share-swap deal, with Uber taking its required shares for the agreed-upon valuation.

Swiggy runs a mobile-based application and a website for food-delivery services currently operating in more than 80 cities across India.  Swiggy values a little more than $3 billion that now rivals homegrown Ola-owned Foodpanda, China’s Ant Financial Group-backed Zomato, which is valued at over $1 billion, and Uber Eats.
