Uber and Flipkart join hands to help deliver essential products to customers amid Coronavirus lockdown

Your vegetables will come in an Uber

The world has stopped in its track, but to see better days we need to keep feeding ourselves. Preferably food, and not more dose of TikTok.

There’s been a high priority in mobilisation of essential goods that are needed to keep folks at home, and hopefully alive. But that menial task is no longer followed by a Mexican standoff in the house. Flipkart and Uber have tied up to bring the essential goods right at your doorstep. As part of the announcement, Mr. Prabhjeet Singh, Director-Operations and Head of Cities, Uber India & South Asia, said Uber will not charge any commission, enabling drivers to keep 100 percent of billed amounts”. 

It’s to empower and create earning opportunities for drivers in this state of crisis, and Uber has also given mandatory masks, gloves, sanitisers and safety training to all drivers.
