    The new FCs will be fully working prior to the 2018 festival season.

    FCs are the warehouses where sellers can stock the inventory. Money can be saved by replacing upfront capital expenses with low variable cost and pay only for the storage space which they use to fulfill Amazon's orders.

    "With the addition of this expanded infrastructure, we will be able to offer an even better Prime experience to our customers," Amazon India Vice President Customer Fulfillment Akhil Saxena said.
