Albinder Dhindsa, the founder of online grocery delivery platform Grofers, has been criticised for saying that people if needed groceries, the startup will deliver in within 10-15 minutes. Grofers has been flayed for the statement as Dhindsa's promise will put its riders at risk.
Earlier this week the company announced that it has started 10-minutes grocery delivery service in 10 cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Jaipur.
Dhindsa responded on Twitter to the criticism:
I want to chime in about the hate we are getting for delivering groceries in 10 minutes... pic.twitter.com/RNhFvd6ojV— Albinder Dhindsa (@albinder) August 28, 2021
Gurugram-based grocery delivery startup Grofers entered the unicorn club, after raising $120 million from online food delivery firm Zomato.
