Imphal: The United Committee on Delivery Executives of Manipur on Friday called upon the government to clarify on what kind of e-commerce deliveries are allowed during the curfew hours, as delivery executives of local companies are being detained.

In a release, the committee said, “With reference to order no.H-160/6/2020 PART-I dated 19/07/2021 issued by the chief secretary Dr. Rajesh Kumar, the E-commerce delivery service is exempted from the curfew imposed area by the Government of Manipur. As a result, Manipur e-commerce stores have started their services on delivering essential day-to-day items, including vegetables, medicine, grocery items, sanitary items, baby foods, etc. However, our delivery executives are being detained by police personnel stating that local e-commerce are not permitted to resume their service except for big e-commerce company as such as Amazon, Myntra, etc.”

“This kind of act by the police personnel is unreasonable and illogical as per the notification issued by the Government of Manipur.”

Highlighting that they follow all COVID-19 protocols and deliver only essential items to customers by risking their lives in this pandemic, the committee has requested the Government of Manipur to look into this matter and address the public.

The United Committee on Delivery Executives, Manipur, comprises of Joychand Moirangthem (Managing Director), Freshcart store (www.freshcartstore.com), Bickychand (Co-founder and Director), Food wifi (www.foodwifi.in), Vitoo Oinam (Co-founder and Managing Director), SF Delivery (www.soultifaction.com), Leishana Laishram (Managing Director), Taste of Imphal (www.tasteofimphal.com), and Robert Salam (Business lead), Book tou (www.booktou.in).
