Flipkart resumes delivery service, only delivering groceries for now

Update (March 26 2:15 pm): Flipkart website and app are now accepting orders, but only for groceries. All other products are “temporarily unavailable”. Limits have been placed on the quantity of certain staple items (such as pulses and flours) that can be purchased in an order. Also, the earliest delivery slot available in Delhi is for April 2 at the time of publishing.

Original story (March 25 5:44 pm): Flipkart will resume its grocery and essentials services later today, CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy said in a statement to MediaNama. He said that the company has been “assured of the safe and smooth passage of our supply chain and delivery executives by local law enforcement authorities”. The company has also updated its website to read “Paused. But Not For Long!”

Flipkart had “temporarily” suspended its services on its website and app. At the time of publishing, it was not accepting any new orders on Supermart, its grocery micro-site, and focussing on fulfilling the existing ones. Everything — from an external hard disk to laptop to Harry Potter books to biscuits to atta — is still listed out of stock. If you click on a product, it says the product is “currently out of stock in this area”. We tried different pincodes (Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore) and got the same result every time.

***Update (March 26 2:15 pm): Updates about app and website. Originally published on March 25 at 5:44 pm.
