Flipkart suspends its services temporarily

New Delhi (NVI): E-commerce website Flipkart has temporarily suspended its services from today, in the view of 21-day nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus outbreak.

In a message on its website Flipkart said: “Hello Fellow Indians, we are temporarily suspending our services. Your needs have always been our priority, and our promise is that we will be back to serve you as soon as possible,” the company said in a statement.

“These are difficult times, times like no other. Never before, have communities stayed apart to stay safe! Never before, has been at home meant helping the nation,” it added.

Earlier on Tuesday, Amazon’s India unit also announced that it will stop orders for non-essential products in the country to prioritise customer’s critical needs at a time of lockdown to prevent the spread of the virus.
