"We are truly excited about the rapid adoption of Tinder in India...women particularly seem to love Tinder, sending more Super Likes than men each week, which is incredibly empowering," Tinder's India head Taru Kapoor said in a statement.

Without disclosing absolute numbers, the app which competes with others like TrulyMadly, OkCupid and Woo, said it has witnessed a 400 percent increase in downloads in past year.

It said Indians are sending one million 'super likes' per week on the application, with women being more active in sending the 'super likes'. It, however, did not share more details on the split between men and women on app usage.

Kapoor added that the conversations on the app last more in India than in any other country. The app launched in 2012 is present in 196 countries globally in 30 languages.
