  • They also have pasted over 2,000 stickers with messages about saving the girl child on trucks 
  • The couple has also provided 1,500 girls with books and other educational materials

“Be the change you want to see” is absolutely synonymous with Jaipur-based IRS officer, Hari Narayan Meena. With a selfless approach in mind, this man from Jaipur has been devoting his free time and holidays for the past 7 years as he felt accountable for a noble cause. He has taken the initiative of making people aware about the importance of ‘saving girl child’ along with his wife, Hemlata Meena. He is currently posted as a Joint Commissioner (Excise) in Delhi.

While speaking to indiatimes.com, he said, “When I was preparing for civil services, I was surprised to learn that when India was progressing in other sectors, the sex ratio was constantly on the decline since the Independence of the country. I thought what could be the reason for declining sex ratio. I started people making aware about it.”

He would also go to the Central Park in Jaipur to distribute pamphlets among morning walkers. Some think that he is there to collect donations while some ignore him.The various reactions he has received from the people has not affected his determination.

Flipkart on Monday announced it has revamped its seller onboarding process to ease the first-time e-commerce experience for medium and small businesses (MSMEs).

The e-tailer has also stationed 13 regional teams across the country to help onboard sellers in person, by meeting with them at their premises.

These changes to the onboarding process will make it easier for small sellers, who may not have prior digital expertise, to list their products on the platform and access Flipkart’s pan-India base of over 150 million customers.

“By revamping our onboarding process and simplifying the number of steps, we are making it easier for any seller, no matter the size, to list on our platform and get started from day one,” said Nishant Gupta, Head of Flipkart’s Marketplace business.

New e-commerce norms to impact e-tailers: Flipkart. 

Currently, e-commerce accounts for less than three per cent of India’s overall retail industry. Government estimates suggest there are roughly 60 million MSMEs in India, many of whom are restricted to their local markets due to difficulties in accessing resources.

Flipkart has also added regional teams in various Tier II and beyond cities to help sellers sign onto the platform.
