Patanjali  Ayurved, the “swadeshi enterprise” led by Baba Ramdev , announced  the plan for forming an e-commerce platform – Order Me, after  Narendra Modi gave “vocal for local” call. It has been planned to go live within 15 days, according to Times Now report.

The chief executor and managing director of  Patanjali Ayurved, Acharya Balkrishna said the e-commerce platform is  introduced in order to meet Prime Minister’s “vocal for local”, call. The Modi’s push for swadeshi products seemed like a perfect opportunity for  the yoga guru to set up an e-commerce platform and capitalize the opportunity for the same.

Ramdev’s  FMCG  brand, worth 3000 crore, is to have a tough competition with JioMart, as both brands are targeting mom-n-pop stores.

Ramdev believes Patanjali can easily replace the international brands; Maggi and Nestle.

According to the report, Acharya Balkrishna said, “OrderMe will supply, support and approve only swadeshi products . Patanjali’s effort is to contribute towards the long-term swadeshi  movement by connecting the local retailers  and small enterprise owners with the aim to gain benefit from selling those swadeshi products on their e-commerce platform. The small scale enterprises can join their e-commerce platform and the plan  is , to deliver their swadeshi products free of cost”.

And he also told OrderMe app is being developed by Patanjali with it’s own IT team along with  New Delhi based Bharuwa Solutions which is to be launched across Android and iOs soon.  The CEO has also planned to double down the swadeshi theme with in-built software which is used to manage the sale, supply of products on a country wide distribution.

The OrderMe app, derived  its name from a sacred and spiritual symbol found in Indian religions,” OM”(O for Order and M for Me). The new e-commerce platform uses Patanjali Ayurveda’s  5000 base outlets across  the country. Tijarawala said that efforts will be put in ensuring credible delivery. The company will be using workforce at their outlets and additionally create jobs to complete the delivery chain.
