Karnataka Government has now allowed e-commerce firms to ship all goods (Essential & Non-Essential) in the state, as Covid-19 cases have been steadily declining in the State.

In a notification issued on Wednesday, the state government reversed its May 9 order restricting e-commerce operators from shipping non-essential goods.

The late-night order had taken the e-commerce firms – including dominant players Amazon and Walmart-owned Flipkart — by surprise.

Earlier this month, the Karnataka government issued orders stating that only essential commodities can be delivered through e-commerce and home delivery portals.

The move comes days after e-commerce operations in several districts of the state had come to a standstill after local authorities clamped down on movement of people and vehicles.

Third-party logistics operators – which e-commerce firms rely on in smaller cities — were reportedly forced to shut operations by district authorities. E-commerce players had said that the restrictions not only affected deliveries of non-essential goods, but also essential items ordered by consumers.
