Flipkart to Resume Shipping and Deliveries from Later Today, Confirms CEO
Flipkart, one of the two largest e-commerce companies in India, has confirmed that normal services on its platform will resume by the end of the day. The e-commerce platform had suspended operations since morning today, March 25, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced yesterday the commencement of a 21-day lockdown period pan India, to curb the community spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. After some confusion among authorities that led to services of many e-commerce and delivery-based services to be suspended, Flipkart has officially confirmed that its shipping and deliveries of groceries and essential services will resume by the end of today.
Kalyan Krishnamurthy, chief executive of the Flipkart Group, said on the matter, “We have been assured of the safe and smooth passage of our supply chain and delivery executives by local law enforcement authorities and are resuming our grocery & essentials services later today.
