Flipkart to Create 70,000 New Jobs in India 

Walmart’s Flipkart said on Tuesday i.e. 15th September, it would create 70,000 new jobs and employ many more as delivery partners and in other roles as it prepares for a surge in online shopping during the busy Indian festive season.

Flipkart, Amazon’s Indian unit and Reliance’s fledgling e-commerce business are vying for a share of the booming online retail market, which received a big boost from the COVID-19 as more Indians used their smartphones to shop for groceries and other items.

The company said in an emailed statement, “While creating direct job opportunities across Flipkart’s supply chain, that include delivery executives, pickers, packers and sorters, there will also be additional indirect jobs created at Flipkart’s seller partner locations and (local corner stores).”
