India’s e-commerce marketplace Flipkart has inaugurated a new grocery fulfilment centre (FC) in Jaipur, Rajasthan.  

The new opening strengthens the company’s delivery capabilities and meets the growing demand for online groceries in the region. 

It also highlights Flipkart’s efforts to offer convenient delivery slots and a wide range of quality grocery products to its customers.  

The new 69,000ft² FC is equipped to dispatch 6,500 orders daily to Jaipur and its neighbouring cities, including Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Kota.  

With more than 5,000 products, the centre will feature local brands.

The establishment of the FC will create 600 direct and indirect jobs, boosting the local economy and supporting small businesses, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), and farmers.

Flipkart Group chief corporate affairs officer Rajneesh Kumar said: “As a customer-first organisation, Flipkart leverages its homegrown technology to keenly identify high-demand hotspots and address consumer needs for quality grocery products.  

“The launch of our first grocery fulfilment centre in Jaipur marks a significant advancement in our efforts to enhance delivery services and meet the growing consumer demand for online groceries in Rajasthan. 

“As we continue to expand our footprint, the new FC aligns with our commitment to strengthening partnerships with local farmers, MSMEs and other local businesses. We remain committed to furthering our vision of empowering these communities economically and fostering sustainable growth while creating new livelihood opportunities.” 

Consumers in the Indian state of Rajasthan previously relied on the Dharuhera FC in Haryana for their grocery needs, and can now expect quicker deliveries and better value.  

The retailer also offers customer services including cash on delivery, pay later options, no-cost equated monthly instalments, easy cancellation and unified payments interface for digital payments. 

Flipkart also provides voice-enabled shopping, regional language support, credit offerings and open-box delivery to improve the shopping experience.

The opening comes shortly after Flipkart, which is owned by Walmart, secured an investment from multinational technology company Google.
