Zomato organizes awareness camps for delivery partners across New Delhi

EROS TIMES:New Delhi, May 27, 2024: Zomato, India’s food delivery platform, has undertaken a
massive drive across New Delhi to raise awareness amongst its delivery partners on the
Delhi Motor Vehicle Aggregator and Delivery Service Scheme, 2023 (“Scheme”). The
Scheme mandates disclosure of all vehicles associated with cab aggregators, delivery
service providers and e-commerce entities, and mandates EV targets on these fleets. At
these awareness drive camps organized across New Delhi, the company is working with
delivery partners to seek their vehicle details so as to register them on the Govt’s portal – in
an attempt to ensure that none of their delivery partners get excluded from participating in
the platform economy owing to the Scheme.
As part of the proposed Scheme, all aggregators and service providers are required to
declare all on-boarded vehicles in use by June 14, 2024 (on a portal notified by GNCTD).
While historically, delivery service providers have not been required to collect vehicle data,
the current deadline for declaring all existing fleet associated with an aggregator or
delivery service provider is 14 June 2024. Any vehicle that is not declared will not be
permitted to ply in Delhi.
So far, in its endeavor to ensure compliance with the ambitious timeline of June 14, 2024
and to ensure that no delivery partner is left behind, Zomato has so far organized camps at
15 different locations in the last few days across different spots in Delhi. The company has
also undertaken awareness generation initiatives through notifications, calls, messages,
reaching thousands of delivery partners across the city.
Over the years, gig work has become a preferred source of supplemental income
generation opportunity for people, given the flexibility and welfare provisions it offers.
Over the past six years, Zomato has provided earning opportunities for over 24 lakh gig
workers across all states in the country and including 27,000+ women and 300+ specially-
abled persons till date. The company offers Personal accident insurance policy with an
accidental death cover of INR 10 lacs to all eligible delivery partners, covering permanent
total disability and permanent partial disability due to accidents. It also offers Health
Insurance policy for all eligible DPs, which includes IPD/ hospitalization and day care with
coverage upto INR 1 lac, including ICU coverage, OPD, tele-consultation and online doctor
consultation for delivery partners. For both, accident insurance and health insurance
policy, premium expense is borne by Zomato.
Additionally, Zomato offers income protection cover in case deliveries cannot be fulfilled
owing to non-accidental concerns such as Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya, Typhoid,
Pulmonary, Tuberculosis, Meningitis, et. Zomato has also introduced an industry-first
provision – maternity insurance which provides coverage up to INR 40,000 for birth as well
as maternity complications (including miscarriage). These provisions are through a private
insurance provider, and the premium expense is borne solely by Zomato.
