Reliance Industries limited has now officially launched its online grocery service, JioMart, across the nation after running pilot programme in Maharashtra’s Navi Mumbai, Thane, and Kalyan, reports India TV News.
As per reports, JioMart will deliver groceries in more than 200 towns across the country. Currently, JioMart is available as a web version but the mobile version is expected to be available very soon.
As per the website, JioMart is an online selling channel (format) of Reliance Retail Limited. It offers free express grocery delivery from neighbourhood mom-and-pop stores.
Customers in operational cities can order from JioMart that will compete with other platforms such as Alibaba-backed BigBasket and SoftBank-funded Grofers, Amazon, Flipkart Supermart etc.
JioMart further claims that all products listed are sourced directly from the registered farmers. With JioMart, the company wants to move farmers online to sell their products and boost their business which was impacted due to coronavirus pandemic.
Last month, Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance Retail had gone live on WhatsApp in the areas of Navi Mumbai, Thane and Kalyan in Mumbai.
