The new employment opportunities were created primarily due to the growing demand for e-commerce services across India. Badri further claimed that all the relevant healthcare and wellness benefits will be extended to the new hires to ensure safety amid the ongoing pandemic.

If reports are to be believed, Flipkart is carrying out various training programs for all its staff that is directly hired for various aspects of the supply chain process.

As a part of this plan, the Walmart-owned online retailer will add 8,00,000 square feet of space through five additional fulfillment centers in the upcoming three months.
