Don't be surprised if your Flipkart orders are delivered by a billionaire entrepreneur. E-commerce giant Flipkart has announced that over the next 15-20 days, all their employees, including the company's co-founders Sachin and Binny Bansal, will go out and deliver products.

"We want to learn more about the market, customers and understand what the need is for the future — also to thank them," said Binny Bansal, who has seen his personal fortune swell because of Flipkart's valuation. Both the Bansals debuted on the Forbes' rich list this year with an estimated wealth of about $1.3 billion each.

While Flipkart, valued at over $15 billion has grown to become an e-commerce powerhouse, the move serves as a reminder of Flipkart's early days as a small start-up, when the two Bansals would personally go out to deliver books on their scooters in Bengaluru.
