Delivery partners’ strike disrupts Swiggy service in Bhubaneswar

Online food delivery platform Swiggy has curtailed its services in Bhubaneswar as its delivery partners have gone on a strike seeking immediate restoration of their incentives. The delivery partners alleged that the incentive they were being given for delivering food was stopped after the outbreak of the pandemic. 

Swiggy has around 800 delivery partners in the city. According to the brand, though the price of petrol has gone up, their usual payout per order (delivery fee), paid on per kilometre basis remains unchanged. Swiggy officials said monthly incentives are tied to the total orders delivered in a month.

A company statement said, “Most delivery partners in Bhubaneswar make over INR 40 per order, translating to more than INR 8 per km. In fact, the highest performing partners make up to INR 100 per order. These are at par with what they made pre-Covid and with industry standards.”
