Grocery items being taken for home delivery amid complete lockdown in the city.

Amid the nationwide lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic people are struggling to get essential goods.

The much-touted home delivery system has left them high as issues like quality of items and over pricing are rife be it for vegetables or grocery items.

Although in Freeganj and nearby areas people appreciated home delivery system, they also admitted that home delivery is being done only for big orders and many of the essential things are out of stock.

Online booking and home delivery system for essential goods is not at all convenient. Big outlets are giving home delivery on shopping of more than Rs 1,000. Sometimes they charge more and it takes too much time, at least one has to wait 2 days for one痴 turn.- Kaynat Tanwar, Topkhana
