“This has already been launched in India and the UAE, and will be live in other markets over the next few days,” the Zomato CEO said in a statement.

“The world has come to a halt, and unfortunately, the restaurant industry that we are in, is one of the worst hit. It is in times like these when we really need to rise to the occasion and support each other to the best of our abilities,” Goyal emphasized.
