The Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) chief executive has announced that the project will bring UP One District One Product (UP-ODOP) products to Bengaluru next week.
Story so far: The government’s ambitious e-commerce project will make an appearance in Bengaluru, announced T Koshy, the chief executive of ONDC. UP-ODOP is an initiative by the Uttar Pradesh government to encourage the sales and production of indigenous products from the districts in the state.
- Koshy also claimed that logistics unicorn Shiprocket is live on the government’s digital commerce platform.
- ONDC is also in the process of onboarding Flipkart’s logistics arm.
Implications: Now that Shiprocket is a part of the project, intercity delivery will become a reality in ONDC. This will allow UP-ODOP products to be shipped with ease across the country soon through SellerApp. Craftsvilla, Mystore and Spice Money, would be bringing these products to Bengaluru next week.
