Disturbing experience with Big Basket.

The day before yesterday, I ordered some vegetables with bigbasket.com I used their mobile app. The order was split into two delivery slots; one within the next 60 minutes of ordering and the other was supposed to be delivered between 5 to 7.30 PM yesterday.

Bigbasket always delivered on time if not earlier. However, the order number MBO-8150665-110316 was delivered only at 8.30 PM. When I asked the delivery boys the reason for the delay, I was told that it was due to thick traffic. After an hour or so, I received an email (see below) from Big Basket that the order was delivered at 6.44 PM. I could not understand the reason behind this lie.

I can understand a delay once in way and in fact it was the first time I experienced it, but, why tell a lie? It has certainly spoiled their reputation.
