With more than 2,500 restaurants now logged out against the deep discounting practices of online food aggregators across the country, the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) on Saturday said it will soon begin a more intense movement to stop “unethical” practices being adopted by online food apps like Zomato Gold.

“The NRAI will very soon initiate movement against online delivery aggregators which are affecting the sustainability and growth of the restaurant industry,” it said in a statement.


Founded in 1982, the NRAI represents the interests of over 5 lakh restaurants.

Sounding the bugle for bitter days ahead, the restaurants’ body headed by Rahul Singh has locked horns with Zomato CEO Deepinder Goyal who himself has announced to log out of the #logout campaign.

On Friday, Singh hit back at Goyal by starting a new campaign #ZoGoisNoGo.

“We thank Dineout, Eazydiner, magicpin and Nearbuy for rejigging their features to eradicate the deep discounting epidemic.

“However, Zomato has decided to cut all ties through a statement of their assertion of logging out of the logout campaign. From our end, that simply implies #ZoGoisNoGo,” Singh said in a statement.

A Zomato spokesperson reacted: “We stand by our 10-point improvement plan that addresses the collective concerns of our restaurant partners while keeping our users’ best interests in mind.”

Zomato has been accused by the NRAI of “unethical” deep discounting practices for its “Gold” prgramme. The magicpin and Dineout have already come out in Singh’s support.

The NRAI on August 14 announced the #logout movement to detox customers from discount addiction and give restaurant industry freedom from aggregators who have “distorted a vibrant marketplace by aggressive discounting and predatory pricing”. (IANS)

Many stray animals are trying to survive as the temperature in the capital continues to drop. Many strays lose this battle trying to find food and warmth under a scrap of clothing or caged up in the corner of streets. The Perroayuda Welfare Foundation (PWF), a Delhi-based animal welfare organisation, recently held a Mega Stray Feeding Drive in Lajpat Nagar with the goal of feeding all of the area's stray animals. These wonderful Samaritans come from all around Delhi-NCR with one goal in mind: to rescue, feed, and adopt all animals in need.

Indonesian lawmakers passed a law on the relocation of the nation's capital to the island of Kalimantan, which shares borders with Malaysia and Brunei, from the most populated island of Java. The move is a step forward in one of the most ambitious projects initiated by the country's President Joko Widodo, Xinhua news agency reported. Some former presidents had floated ideas of relocating the capital city in the past. The president, widely known as Jokowi, three years ago vowed to relocate the capital city to the province of East Kalimantan due to a number of issues like high population density and land subsidence in Jakarta which is home to more than 10 million people.
