Amazon India has announced its new “Faster than Same Day” delivery service on a selection of its best-selling smartphones in the Delhi-NCR region. Using the service, customers can now get their smartphones delivered within three to five hours of ordering.
The service is currently available only in the Delhi-NCR region, and that too, in certain areas. Customers that are eligible for it will get a notification in the form of “Get this phone even faster. Delivery within 5 hours.”

With the launch of this pilot, our customers in Delhi-NCR can order smartphones and receive their order in just a few hours without changing the way they shop. This new service will enable us to better serve our customers and also support our Prime members with free & fast delivery, especially this festive season.”
The company is also already running the wave two of its Great Indian Festival till October 28th.
