The Food and Beverages (F&B) industry, which has already suffered enough during the Lockdown, is on the ventilator. The Hyderabad City police almost pulled the plug off the ventilator on Saturday. In the name of Strict Lockdown, the police have wielded the lathi on delivery agents of Swiggy and Zomato on Saturday.

Penalties were levied, and their bikes were seized. Both the food delivery apps had to stop their services as a result abruptly. Several families who are in home isolation have suffered a lot. Eateries and good samaritans had to waste a lot of food with no delivery options. Minister KTR has intervened towards the end of Saturday and directed the DGP to take stock of the situation. After a review meeting with the three commissioners, DGP Mahender Reddy announced that e-commerce operations would go seamless from Sunday.

But then, the food delivery is allowed only between 6 AM and 10 AM on Sunday. Several restaurants remained shut on Sunday with no clarity. Food delivery apps struggled as the delivery agents did not come on roads and with their vehicles still in the police possession. So, only a very few eateries have opened on Sunday evening even after the police announced allowing their operations. 

"With no walk-in business, if the 6 AM to 10 AM rule is enforced, there will be mayhem in the industry. Hope better sense prevails and at least the whole day deliveries are allowed from Monday. With the Saturday experience, it will take a few days to gain the confidence of the delivery agents and the eateries," an F&B expert told Nearby News.
