Reliance had recently acquired online pharmacy startup Netmeds through Reliance Retail. The company has already emerged as a dominant force in the online grocery space with over 4 lakh orders delivered in a day even as it competes with BigBasket, Grofers, Amazon Pantry, and Flipkart Supermart. Entry into digital pharmacy is part of the Reliance’s plan, announced earlier, to foray into electronics, fashion, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare after groceries.
