Address is not that important(at least for Indian citizens as in India it is very difficult to commit an identity theft scam based on address compared to USA), fraudsters most interested in same email IDs used at other important sites & use them for password reset or other targeted attack.

Personal details were not hashed/encrypted but passwords were hashed though which cipher was used is not known because if it is a weak one then it can be cracked easily. For peace of mind change email id & password in all other accounts same as bigbasket account.

My citi bank CC was used for fraud once
From then I am cautious from saving a CC in any website
Always enter your own card details.
delete whereever it is saved

You can save cc safely in sites like amazon & flipkart(especially now when it is Walmart owned), their security system is better than most Indian banks. Paypal of course is even better.

I have 3 cards saved on Bb. Should I get them all replaced to be on the safe side? International transactions is turned off on all of them, is it still susceptible?

If international transactions are disabled(& never going to use them) then not much to worry about as all Indian transactions require otp. Still replace the card which is having most limit/most valuable as per you & on which you might do international transactions in future.
