    However, the e-retailer backed out from being part of the plan as it had found the telecom firm's marketing platform to be violating the principle of net neutrality after further study.

    Last week, Housing.com CEO Rahul Yadav took on Zomato and Ola Cabs through Twitter, challenging them to give away half their stake to employees. On the other hand, Zomato founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal had tweeted against the platform saying: "Couldn't have built Zomato if we had a competitor on something like Airtel Zero."
