Online grocery platform Indian Grahak acquires Dyscover


Indian Grahak, the Kolkata based online supermarket, has acquired online hyper-local marketplace Dyscover in a cash and stock deal, reports NextBigWhat. It is unclear if Dyscover’s entire team is moving to Indian Grahak.

Indian Grahak was founded by Sumana Mukherjee and Somjeet Mukherjee in August 2014 and is operational in Jamshedpur and Kolkata. It is an e-commerce platform that enables grocery retail stores and supermarkets to reach out to their customers and build an online presence. At present, it provides products in groceries, household supplies, personal care, baby care, health care and stationery and claims to see a growth rate of 40% per month.

Dyscover operated in Jamshedpur and had a team size of 22. The company provided groceries, electronics, personal care and books at a supposed lower-than-market price. It provided users with information on deals and offers from retailers in the city with the option of home delivery by placing orders through the website. It also offered free delivery on orders above Rs 300, while orders below that were charged Rs 30 for delivery. The company worked as an e-commerce store as well as search engine.

– In April, hyperlocal online grocery retailer Grofers acquired mobile grocery startup My Green Box. My Green Box’s 15 member team joined Grofers and MyGreen Box founder Varun Khurana was expected to act as the CTO of Grofers.

– Godrej Group’s premium food products retailer Nature’s Basket had acquired Mumbai-based online grocery store Ekstop.com, in February this year, and later integrated it into Nature’s Basket’s online store.
