The Centre on Wednesday allowed operations of e-commerce companies and courier services starting April 20.
In an order, the Ministry of Home Affairs, has also said that vehicles of e-commerce companies can ply with necessary permissions.
The relaxations are allowed in areas which are not hotspots for coronavirus cases.
Although e-commerce companies were allowed to carry on the delivery of groceries and essential goods during the past 21 days of lockdown, there were issues being faced by their delivery personnel due to the restrictions from the authorities.
Initially there were several reports of delivery partners of e-commerce firms being beaten by police, but eventually, the Home Ministry assured the companies that they would be able to operate and deliver essential goods.
“In line with the guidelines announced by the Government of India and also in collaboration with all State Governments & local authorities, we will continue to serve consumers to promote social distancing through our sanitised supply chain, contact-less deliveries and safe last mile delivery process,” a Flipkart Group spokesperson said.
