Mumbai: The E-commerce firms are given approvals by the latest government guidelines upon resumption of deliveries of both essential and non-essential commodities in all three zones.
The containment zones are restricted to be operational by Retailers and Red zones are confined to the delivery of essential goods only to prevent any further spread as the government announced the extension of lockdown till 31st May.
According to the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, “Online retail sales will continue to be restricted in containment zones across the country, where only essential activities will be allowed.”
“We don’t expect states to restrict e-commerce activity in any way and we should start accepting orders from tomorrow (Monday). Moreover, offline stores are open in most locations, so it shouldn’t be a problem for us as well”, a senior executive of a leading e-commerce marketplace told ET.
Restrictions on OLA and Uber have also been dodged off by the guidelines issued by MHA.
