The scheme was adopted by the Delhi government’s Department of Tourism the same year and formally launched in 2004 for all restaurants with more than 30 seats.

Various reviews and reconsiderations were done by the Tourism Department over the years on the request of restaurant associations, the government said. Kejriwal ordered the removal of the voluntary scheme owing to Covid-induced circumstances.
