Amazon will now deliver to containment zones in Mumbai — these are the eligible areas
AmazonIndia has partnered with Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation to deliver essential supplies in Mumbai’s containment zones.
- Amazon will deliver orders to a designated delivery point in the vicinity of the containment zone.
- Volunteers will then deliver the packages to the customer’s doorstep.
- The entire list of containment zones are listed below.
“Our collaboration with BMC is intended to support those in the containment zones to access essential items conveniently and safely,” said Prakash Rochlani, Director, Last Mile Operations, Amazon India.
During Lockdown 3.0, Amazon has also started delivering non-essential orders to green and orange zones in the country. However, the metropolitan cities of India that are the top markets for e-commerce platforms are in the red zone where only essentials can be delivered.
How will it function
Amazon will deliver orders to a designated delivery point in the vicinity of the containment zone, from where volunteers will further deliver the packages to the customer’s doorstep.
Consumers will have to place their orders on the Amazon app, and select their delivery location in the containment zone. Volunteers from the containment zone will then pick up the packages and deliver it to the user's doorsteps.
