Our honorable Prime Minister had announced yesterday that the entire country will witness a 21-day lockdown. This step has been taken to protect the citizens from the wrath of the Coronavirus outbreak. To support this initiative, Flipkart has come on-board and has suspended all operations.
Flipkart announces shutdown of its services
This decision by the e-commerce giant comes right after the announcement of a nationwide lockdown. However, Flipkart has not stated that for how long this shutdown would last. This shutdown of services includes Flipkart’s grocery division as well. A federal government advisory has suggested to essential delivery services like food and medical equipment along with grocery stores and banks.
In the notice furnished by Flipkart, the company has said that “Our promise is that we will be back to serve you, as soon as possible”. Along with this, the pantry service by Amazon is also not available in a lot of cities. There’s no official statement from the company regarding the same. But still, the unavailability of this delivery service exists in a lot of cities.
After the announcement, the authorities have taken swift action to follow the 21-day lockdown. All kinds of the movement have been suspended by the police. It is advised that one should go out only when there a dire need to buy groceries, medicines or report to a doctor.
We at Mr.Phone are complying with the Work From Advisory. We urge all our readers to follow the same to ensure the safety of your family and friends. Are you also facing any issues in terms of grocery deliveries? Let us know in the comments.
