Commenting on the development, CEO and co-founder Shashank Kumar stated this buyback demonstrates the company's commitment to employees and generating wealth creation opportunities for them.

    DeHaat operates a full-stack digital platform providing end-to-end agricultural services to farmers across 11 states. These include supply of quality farm inputs, customized advisories, financial services access and market linkages. The agritech startup claims to have assisted over 2 million farmers through its network of more than 11,000 localized centers.

    According to company details, revenue from operations increased 40% year-on-year in FY24 to Rs. 2,700 crores. Losses also narrowed by 50% during this period.
