Open Up E Commerce During Lockdown

Should the lockdown be extended then at least open up e commerce and couriers services to both essential and non essential products and services. Ensure courier companies provide their couriers with protective gear and training. Many businesses can then get back online. more  

If pharmacists, consumer goods shops, fruit and vegetable vendors etc. are permitted to deliver their products to customers, then bracketing out e-traders would appear somewhat out of place. As far as one hears, e-basket and modern bazar are continuing with their home-deliveries, but no authentication here. I don't know about Zomato, Swiggy, Pizza and other foodstuffs, because we don't order food online. Thought revision is also needed on the so-called "kaamwallis" who come to clean your household or do some cooking etc.......especially when it comes to aged seniors (verisht nagrik) ..... Reluctance on the part of authorities to ease restrictions is perhaps because they do not have dependable wherewithals to Corona-check those who would then be allowed to "deliver".... This may only be a matter of time, at least let's keep hopes alive !! more  
Agree. The essentials list is very narrow. The hoarding instinct will only get stronger if people can not easily get the products they need. more  
I agree. However, I am still not sure whether the e-commerce companies have the wherewithal to cope up with rising demands. more  
Let them work it out and give them some hope in these desperate times more  
During this lock-down period mots disservice is from those so called great e-commerce services where many people depended on it for basic and special necessities. They should get their people trainbed and provided with PPE and start moving things and delivery after taking orders instead of cancelling their regular subscription orders as being done now by Amazon. Even Medilife also cancelling confirmed prepaid orders during last 15 days should stop and start providing medicine specially to tier 2 &3 cities where even Medical shops doesnt have life saving medicine more  
Yes there is a huge backlog as well, as stalled or cancelled orders which people have to keep checking their accounts to make sure that they have been credited. We need to keep the country going and couriers are not only offer employment for riders/drivers but also can be easily monitored and controlled as opposed to members of the family risking themselves by going out. more
