The biggest Indian ecommerce retailer Flipkart said it will generate over 2 million jobs this year with over 60 per cent of jobs being generated in the logistics and warehousing sector.

In a statement, Flipkart Senior Vice President (Marketplace) Ankit Nagori said, "Sellers on our marketplace have been directly responsible for driving employment within their own communities.”

“In fact, e-commerce support facilities like merchandising, buying, packaging and cataloging have generated more than 75,000 jobs in the last one year," he added.

“Going by past trends, Flipkart is confident that it will generate close to two million jobs this year", he informed.

According to Flipkart, nearly 50-60 per cent of employment this year will be created in tier II and III towns and cities.

“Cities like Jaipur and Baroda have already become ancillary industry hubs in segments like cataloging and packaging and they will continue to generate more opportunities in the future," it too added by saying.

The online retailer noted that sellers will also play a vital role in creation of jobs across India and that sellers of home products, apparels, mobile accessories and small appliances will generate the maximum employment.

“The growth and expansion of their businesses will generate a minimum of 20-25 jobs per seller this year,” Flipkart observed.

Flipkart is offering a range of SME training programs across 20 cities in partnership with the ministry of labour to train and guide people.

These programs aimed at helping people upgrade their skills; will be scaled to 40 cities in the next six months.

Flipkart has 30,000 sellers and over 30 million registered customers and to open up the e-commerce marketplace model even to Indian micro industries, has tied up with various government bodies. (AR)
