As part of Flex, an individual can earn between Rs. 120 to Rs. 140 per hour by delivering packages.
And, with the expansion of the program, it is now open to individuals looking for part-time jobs in more than 35 Indian cities, including major metros as well as non-metros like Raipur, Hubli, Gwalior, and Nashik, among others.
"Opportunity to earn more during these tough times"
"We have received an overwhelming response," Prakash Rochlani, the Director of Last Mile Transportation at Amazon India, said, adding that Flex "partners enjoy the part-time opportunity to earn more, especially at this time when the country is economically recovering from the impact of nationwide lockdown."
Along with creating part-time income opportunities, Amazon Flex program will also give a direct push to Amazon's delivery services, making them more efficient.
Both Amazon and its Walmart-owned competitor Flipkart were hit by India's coronavirus-induced lockdown, although most of the restrictions have now been lifted, allowing the companies to resume deliveries and get sales figures close to pre-lockdown levels.
