Explaining the lay-offs the Delhi based firm said, “As we look to boost efficiencies in the light of the integration, a small number of full-time roles and certain third-party positions on six-month contracts at Meesho Superstore were reassessed to remove redundancies with the core business.”

Founded in 2015 by IIT-Delhi alumni Vidit Aatrey and Sanjeev Barnwal, Meesho last raised funds in September 2021, following a round in April that year as well.

In March, furniture rental startup Furlenco, Edtech company Lido, social commerce platform Trell and bookkeeping startup OkCredit also shrunk a notable chunk of their employees.
