To further streamline the delivery of grocery items on the doorstep of residents during the curfew, the district administration has decided to avail the services of Zomato for this purpose.
At present, 20 employees of Zomato have been selected for providing grocery items to residents. But, the company has 200 employees in the city and as per the need, the number of the employees will be increased in the coming days.
On Tuesday, Deputy Commissioner B Srinivasan and SSP Dr Nanak Singh sent a team of Zomato employees for providing grocery to residents. Now, residents can order grocery items online on the Zomato app. Zomato has tied up with two stores in the city and are providing grocery items at the minimum delivery charges on the doorstep.
The Deputy Commissioner said with availing the services of Zomato, the issue of ration in the city would be resolved.
Besides, free dry ration is also being distributed among needed families. On Monday, 1,850 packets were distributed and each packet contained 7-day ration for a family. In addition, the Municipal Corporation with the support of social organisations also provided cooked food to 13,257 people in the city.
