    The idea came out of a realization that the food tech major could bring the convenience of food delivery to a lot of other local e-commerce needs, Sriharsha Majety said in a blog post.

    "Just like how we democratized seamless delivery across over half a lakh restaurants in the country, we can democratize convenience across millions of other merchants/ businesses in our cities," he wrote.

    "We're taking our first step by launching across Gurgaon and will deliver from over 3500 stores across the city. We've already partnered with over 200 stores in categories such as Fruits and Vegetables to Florists, he added.

    The newly launched service will be accessible through the app. Swiggy will also display you a list of stores in the city.

    The team at Kint.io will join Swiggy to boost its computer vision technology and superior consumer experience. It will also give Swiggy more expertise and talent in this area.

    As part of this acqui-hire, the founding members of Kint.io Pavithra Solai Jawahar and Jagannathan Veeraraghavan will join the Swiggy team.
