UPDATE : Well, Flipkart seems to be up from our side now. But some users continue to complain the outage. Do comment below and let us know if you are experiencing any outage.
Can’t open Flipkart right now ? Fret not. it looks down from here too, and many other viewers have reported the same. However, the outage is common to a specific set of users (which sadly includes us too), and not everyone.
No clear reason for the downtime, except for a possible server oveload looks viable right now.

This is second time in recent past that Flipkart is experiencing a downtime. It recently faced a similar outage, though it was strangely limited to BSNL customers only.
