The Ola Dash will take on Blinkit, which has recently moved to a 10-minute grocery delivery model. According to data released in December last year, Blinkit has opened 300 dark stores. Quick delivery service has gained momentum with the help of dark stores. These stores give the e-commerce brand direct access to the goods, but this is for delivery only.
