Flipkart aids the Telangana government for drone delivery of medicines amidst the pandemic

According to sources coming out from India, the e-comm giant Flipkart has teamed up with the Telangana state government to lead a consortium tasked with the development and execution of the drone deliveries.

These drones will supply medicines to remote areas under the ‘Medicines from the Sky’ project. As you might have expected it will fall on Flipkart to implement drone technology for the successful deployment of the drones and also enable the smooth delivery of vaccines and medical supplies.

This development comes amidst the time when India is facing a severe shortage of supplies of COVID-19 vaccines. The condition is worsening in the country which has been affected the worst in the pandemic’s third wave.
