electronic goods will not be delivered to door in lockdown

The government has made changes in the preceding news according to the earlier guideline by the Ministry of Home Affairs, e-commerce companies could deliver products in certain areas after April 20, but the new change in the rule makes only the delivery of essential items allowed. 

Just after delivery giants Amazon and Flipkart had started accepting preorders for certain products, anticipating the easing of restrictions on e-commerce platforms on April 20, the Ministry of Home Affairs has now said that the supply of non-essential goods by e-commerce companies remain prohibited during the lockdown period.  

About the statement:- 

For the first time since the beginning of the nationwide lockdown, you could order your favorite One Plus phone, or the hardcover book you’ve wanted to buy or even the Macbook you’ve wished to get your hands on. But after the imposition of these new rules, that remains unlikely until the end of the lockdown.

But after the imposition of these new rules, that remains unlikely until the end of the lockdown. It expected that tomorrow, April 20, is when e-commerce companies able to put up most available products on sale, but the new rules don’t allow that.  

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Home Affairs had come up with a revised guideline for the lockdown where they had allowed e-commerce operations, courier services to function from April 20, albeit in certain areas.  

The guidelines stated that all goods would be allowed to ply across the country, except the demarcated containment zones, hotspots or red zones where the spread of infection or the risk, is high. This included operations of railways for transportation of goods and parcels, operations at airports and land ports for cargo movement as well as the movement of trucks and commercial vehicles for pick-up and delivery of goods. The guidelines by the Ministry of Home Affairs said that “vehicles used by e-commerce operators allowed to ply with necessary permissions” and courier services allowed to operate. 

It meant that we could get mobile phones, refrigerators, laptops, books, clothes and stationery items for schoolchildren sold through e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal. But with the latest notification, the supply of non-essential goods from e-commerce companies have been prohibited once again. 

In the new order, the terms “essentials” and “non-essentials” have not been defined clearly by the ministry, and the reason behind this change in the decision is also unclear. The earlier decision of partial relaxation of lockdown came as an attempt to soften the blow on the economy and allow consumers the freedom to be able to shop without having to step out of their homes.
