The service is currently available in Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Noida, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Manesar, Navi Mumbai, Thane and will be scaled up to other cities soon.

"Innovation is part of the Flipkart DNA and over the past six years we have been constantly adding and refining technology that enhances and improves the online experiences for all our customers." said Sachin Bansal, Co-founder and CEO, Flipkart, "Over the past few years, we have led the supply-chain innovation in the country: Flipkart was the first to launch a dedicated logistics service; the first to offer cash-on-delivery and 24x7 customer support on scale and provide customers with a 30 day returns and replacement policy - all of which dramatically changed the way Indian's shopped online. We are the only e-commerce platform offering Same Day Guarantee Delivery at such a large scale to Indian customers today. This launch is the next step in a series of innovations that we have introduced to the Indian online shopping market."
Flipkart claims that it is now the only e-commerce player to extend its In-a-day Guarantee Delivery to Sundays and also offer In-a-Day Guarantee Delivery in 27 cities.
