Indian e-commerce firms such as Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal, the government has allowed the players to deliver both essential and non-essential items across green and orange zones during the third phase of the lockdown, beginning May 4.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has allowed e-commerce platforms to start selling non-essential items during the third lockdown, which means we could be able to shop for new smartphones, laptops and other electronic items.
According to the MHA guidelines, the sale of non-essential items via e-commerce platforms will only be allowed in those areas where the COVID-19 cases are non-existent or sparse. The government states that e-commerce platforms will be able to deliver non-essential items only in those areas that have been marked under orange and green zones. For red zones, the restrictions still apply, which means if you are in Delhi under a red zone, you won’t benefit from anything.
Amazon reportedly said that this will allow millions of small-and-medium businesses and traders to jumpstart their operations and livelihoods across their workforce.
Online retailer Snapdeal said that the move will help start a gradual process of economic recovery by enabling lakhs of sellers and MSMEs to cater to the demand of users through online and offline channels.
With the delivery of non-essential items allowed, it would benefit those who had been wanting to shop for a new phone or a laptop. Earlier in April, the government allowed delivery of essential items via e-commerce platforms but non-essential items were still banned. Hence, Amazon and Flipkart stopped sales of smartphones and laptops.
Do note that the new regulations for the third lockdown period only allows buying non-essential items from online platforms. The government hasn’t clarified whether brick-and-mortar stores could start selling phones as well as laptops in the green zones.
