Gujarat's Ahmedabad, Bengaluru in Karnataka, Odisha's Bhubaneshwar, Coimbatore, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur as well as Lucknow, Ludhiana, Nagpur, Patna, Pune, Raipur, Siliguri, and Vijayawada are also some cities where the service will be rolled out.

To avail delivery on the same day, Flipkart requires customers to place orders by 1 pm latest. The orders will consequently arrive before midnight.

A tentative rollout timeline of Febuary is given, instead of a day from which the service will begin.

Categories available for same day delivery include mobiles, fashion, beauty, lifestyle, books, home appliances and electronics.
