The company did see a fall in monthly transaction customers as Zomato weeded out the unprofitable customers. That reduced cash burn. The company cash balance has been static in the last one year at Rs11,323 crore. ESOP costs of the company are likely to come down further in the coming fiscal year FY24, after a steep fall in FY23.
