E-commerce platforms such as Amazon and Flipkart will now be allowed to resume operations in orange and green zones in the Indian subcontinent. People residing in red zones will have to wait till their region is upgraded to green/yellow or until the nationwide lockdown measures are lifted on May 17th.

With the nationwide lockdown extended for an additional two weeks, a lot of Indian consumers have to wait even longer to get their hands on the latest smartphone/laptop. Thankfully, the Union Health Ministry has allowed e-commerce platforms such as Flipkart and Amazon to resume operations in some regions.

Depending on the number of reported COVID-19 cases, districts have been divided into three categories; namely green, orange, and red. E-commerce platforms will be allowed to deliver 'non-essential' goods in green and orange regions. People residing in said regions should be able to order just about anything they want (subject to availability, of course) without any hassles. To find out where your city stands, check its status in this Twitter thread. People residing in red zones will have to wait till their district attains an orange or green status.

Additionally, you can read the Health Ministry's complete directive and zone-specific rules here. The Indian government initially planned on letting e-commerce platforms resume operations on April 20th. However, the move was overturned at the last minute for unknown reasons.
