"This is a soft launch of the TataNeu super app to test it among employees first," a source said.
Reports suggest that the official launch of the super app has been delayed due to the impending e-commerce rules, the draft of which had proposed that e-commerce platforms cannot sell their own group brands and labels on the platform.
Tata Digital has been on an acquisition spree to boost its super app, having paid over $1 billion to acquire a majority stake in both BigBasket and 1MG. Tata DIgital also invested in Curefit for a minority stake and brought on Curefit cofounder Mukesh Bansal as president.
