Covid lockdown: What you can and cannot order from Amazon

With Coronavirus numbers dangerously surging across cities in the country, several state governments have announced lockdowns. Delhi, Maharashtra, Bhopal, Chandigarh, Jharkhand are under full lockdown; many other states and cities are witnessing partial lockdowns/curfews.

All shops and markets in these areas are completely closed, and only sale of essential items is allowed. These rules have now come into effect online too. Buyers can order only essential items from e-commerce portals like Amazon and Flipkart.

Both the websites have banners running on their websites as well as app that says that they are delivering essentials only. “In the light of the latest government guidelines, we are taking orders of essential products only. Deliveries may take longer than normal,” says the banner on Amazon site.
