Opinion on impact of COVID-19 lockdown on grocery availability India 2020

According to a survey about the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on Indians between March and May 2020, retail stores consistently seemed more reliable during the survey period for consumers to be able to buy essential goods. Online grocery retail took a hit in the days following the lockdown with overbooking and disrupted services.
India implemented a lockdown for 21 days, announced on March 24, 2020. This was after the "Janata Curfew" on March 22, 2020 - a so-called practice lockdown. Panic-buying commenced among consumers days before the lockdown was announced, much like in other countries. This lockdown was the largest in the world, restricting 1.3 billion people, extended until end of May.
