The fulfillment centre in Malda, around 340 km from Kolkata, is spread over 1.13 lakh square feet with a dispatch capacity of over 1 lakh units per day. 

It will cater to more than 7,000 orders per day across Berhampore, Malda, Siliguri, and the north Bengal belt, and parts of Jharkhand and Bihar, including Bhagalpur, Deoghar, Munger, Purnea, Rampurhat and Saharsa. 

The company claimed that the centre will generate more than 700 direct and indirect local job opportunities while providing nationwide market entry for thousands of local sellers, MSMEs, and small-scale farmers in the region. 

West Bengal Agriculture Minister Sobhandeb Chattopadhyay welcomed the decision of Flipkart to launch its fourth grocery fulfillment centre. 

"We are proud to welcome Flipkart's another grocery fulfillment centre in the state and foresee greater participation in the digital commerce space in the coming years. I hope our farmers and producers will reap the maximum benefit from this endeavour," the minister said.
