Earlier this month, Reliance Retail also inked a partnership with WhatsApp Business to compete with e-commerce food and groceries retailers like BigBasket and Grofers. “JioMart would be integrated with WhatsApp to ensure that consumers are able to access the nearest kiranas who can provide products and services to their homes by transacting seamlessly with JioMart using WhatsApp,” the company said.
RIL launched the Jio Mart Pilot initiative, to work with kirana stores by offering services and supplies during the lockdown period.

Brokerages CLSA and Kotak Institutional Equities already ascribe an enterprise value of over 1 trillion for Reliance Retail, and valuations can be far higher on listing. It is the largest in its industry (its revenues are nearly double the size of D-Mart).
