Here, you will see that the listed price of the device is INR 14,999 and you have to bring this amount down to zero by slashing the prices. You can start the game by slashing the price once and then you need to involve your friends in the activity to achieve the target. A friend can only help you slash a maximum of INR 25, so you need to bring as many people as possible to reach to the target.
