New Delhi: Since the opening of online Free Condom Store in April this year, Indians have ordered nearly 10 lakh condoms in just 69 days.
As per reports, the data from the online store shows that 9.56 lakh condoms they delivered free, 5.14 lakh were requested by communities and NGOs, while the remaining (4.41 lakh) were ordered by individuals.
Delhi and Karnataka are the two places from where individuals have placed most of the orders.
The online foundation has clubbed with Hindustan Latex Limited (HLL), which makes special brand of condoms for them.
The foundation had ordered 10 lakh condoms which they thought would last till December, but they ran out of the stock in the first week of July only, as per reports.
This online business of selling condoms will surely do good in the country as most of the people want to avoid the embarrassment of walking into a store and asking for a product linked to sex.
Even the contraceptive industry agrees that stigma is still an issue in India and hopefully, this initiative will remove the barrier and also keep a check on the growing population.
