RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani talks of Jio Mart expansion at the virtual AGM.
JioMart, Reliance Industries' (RIL) platform for customers and kirana stores, has now enabled a multipurpose point of service (POS) service to enable smooth transactions between stores and their customers.
"We have successfully piloted this kirana transformation and those who have opted for this have been positively surprised," Isha Ambani said at RIL's 43rd virtual Annual General Meeting on Wednesday.
She added that since its launch it has been able to deliver to its kirana partners despite the lockdown imposed by COVID-19. Every first time JioMart user will receive a free COVID-19 essential kit with their order.
"JioMart is built upon two fundamental pillars - powerful omni-channel and tech-platform - to unite customers, kiranas and producers," she said.
