The latest notification of MHA allows the ecommerce companies such as Amazon. Flipkart amongst other to deliver both essential and non-essential items in districts categorised as green and orange zones in Lockdown 3.0 that begins May 4 and runs for two weeks. However, they still can’t sell non-essential items in red zone. Green and Orange are the classified areas where there have been no or fewer cases registered of Covid-19. The e-commerce operations will be allowed to run between 7 am and 7 pm, as per the MHA guidelines for non-essential services.
"We welcome the government’s decision to allow e-commerce in orange and green zones to serve people safely with products that they need and have not been able to access due to the lockdown. Millions of small-and-medium businesses and traders will now be able to jumpstart their businesses and livelihoods across their workforce," an Amazon spokesperson said.
