  • The service will soon be started after the companies receive guidelines from states.

E-commerce services in most parts of the country, which were on halt since the beginning of the lockdown in India, will now get greater comfort from today i.e. under the fourth phase of the lockdown.

The news came out via the Union Home Ministry’s latest order which states that all activities including non-essentials, will be allowed, except for those which are specifically prohibited, during the fourth phase of the lockdown which will end on 31 May.

However, only necessary activities will be allowed in the containment zones. The Home Ministry has also left the decision of dividing regions and prohibiting certain other activities for States and Union territories. Their assessment of the situation and upliftment of restrictions in different regions would now be followed for resuming economic activities in the country.

Following the news, e-commerce giants came up and announced that they are resuming their services for all products from today. This also includes Amazon which is now accepting orders on all goods across the country, including non-essentials items. However, deliveries are only possible in non-containment zones. Not only this, consumers can now get products and ‘Pay on Delivery’ in most of the locations.

The companies are also concerned for the safety of its consumers and have announced measures to ensure social distancing for Pay on Delivery orders. For areas where only essential items are getting delivered, Amazon is still accepting orders via prepaid payments only.

Flipkart too is now expected to begin accepting all orders in the country soon. Although the e-commerce giant has not released any official statement about when it will start accepting orders on non-essential items. State governments are expected to release the guidelines for Lockdown 4.0 today, so we can expect Flipkart and Amazon to offer more details for order deliveries.
