He also shared a link for the international donors and asked startups and companies to join hands if they wish to help in such a crisis.
The food delivery startup has also filed for an initial public offering of up to Rs 8,250 crore ($1.11 billion), as consumers increasingly turn to order food online during the pandemic.
In March, the rival food delivery company, Swiggy promised to cover the COVID-19 vaccination cost of over 2 lakh delivery partners. According to sources, announcing the vaccination program, Vivek Sunder, COO at Swiggy, said, “Over the past year, our delivery women and men have been a lifeline for the nation, delivering food and other essentials to millions of Indians during their time of need. As we continue to make all efforts to fight the pandemic, we’re prioritizing creating awareness across our fleet and extending our Covid cover to include access to vaccination for all delivery partners. We will also cover for the loss of pay when they take the time off to get vaccinated. This is another step in doing our bit for our partners who are supporting not just themselves and their families but also the society as essential service providers.”
