Bhubaneswar: The delivery boys of Zomato in Bhubaneswar took to streets on Friday and staged demonstration at the Lower PMG square here in protest of the decrease in their payout and incentives.

The delivery boys have ceased worked for last five days demanding they should be paid their salaries and incentives as per old rate card.

Earlier they were paid Rs 40 per order, which later dropped down to Rs 25 per order. Even if the delivery boys had gone on strike against it, Zomato had not entertained their demands as they had not taken permission of authorities prior to the protest.

Presently, Zomato has further slashed the payout by Rs 3 per order, the Rs 10 incentive on customer ratings by Rs 5 per rating and Rs 10 travel allowance by Rs 3 per km.

The delivery boys have questioned if Rs 11 is slashed from each order how are they going to maintain their livelihood. They have declared to continue the stir till Zomato fulfills their demands.
