Update: The copy has been updated with bigbasket's response.

The gruelling rigour of on-demand services in the online grocery space has claimed another casualty. This time, the victim is bigbasket.

Alibaba-backed bigbasket has merged its express delivery with its slotted delivery, the company confirmed to Moneycontrol after Entrackr reported that the company was shutting down its express service.

"We have brought our two business models - express and slotted delivery together," Hari Menon, co-founder of bigbasket, said.
