In recent developments, the CEO of Zomato, Deepinder Goyal, took to Twitter in order to take a dig at rival Swiggy while asking for clarity on food delivery rules in Mumbai amidst the curfew-like restrictions in the state.



This comes after Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray announced a curfew in the state starting Wednesday, April 14, from 8 pm, except for essential services.  

Meanwhile, the CEO of Zomato quoted an order from additional municipal commissioner Ashwini Bhide, who had posted a copy of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai’s order clarifying about food deliveries.



Currently, the state of Maharashtra is observing a lockdown due to the rising cases of coronavirus. Moreover, stringent guidelines have been imposed in order to ensure the spread of the coronavirus is contained. In view of the situation, the state government has asked all the restaurants and bars to remain closed and had permitted only delivery services to function.

Easing the same, Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has now allowed 24x7 delivery services for restaurants in Mumbai. In addition, BMC Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal earlier on April 7, 2021, stated that essential supplies and food items can now be delivered round the clock using the online delivery models.

However, in-person take away options from the restaurants will remain closed over the weekends during the lockdown. Customers can choose to order online for delivery. Street food vendors can also offer to take away on the weekends. This decision has been taken to avoid crowding in specific areas in the city.
