Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Ayurved is about to launch its swadeshi e-commerce platform ‘OrderMe’ to sell swadeshi-only items within the next 15 days. Will offer more than 800 Patanjali products and connect the consumer to neighborhood stores selling Indian products, ET reports. While the products will be delivered by the company free of cost within a few hours, users will also be offered 24X7 free medical advice from around 1,500 doctors of Patanjali and yoga tutorials, added the report.
The app for the platform has been developed at Patanjali’s information technology company New Delhi-based Bharuwa Solutions and would be made available on both Android and IOS platforms.
“Micro, small and medium enterprises supplying domestic products will be encouraged to join the platform and benefit from it” Patanjali Ayurved managing director and chief executive Acharya Balkrishna was quoted as saying in the report.
Importantly, this development comes just days after PM Narendra Modi urged citizens to buy and endorse local products in the country in his televised address to the nation on May 12. He appealed to the nation to go ‘vocal for local’ and use products manufactured in the country like Khadi.
