Hyderabad: Thousands of Swiggy delivery executives boycotted work on Monday in the city to protest against the food delivery company’s decision to slash incentives, which gives them less money per delivery.

The delivery executives allege that the new incentive structure would hurt their earnings. Swiggy, which earlier used to pay Rs 35 per delivery to its employees, will now pay Rs 15 for each delivery respectively.

Speaking to siasat.com, Shaik Salauddin, National General Secretary, Indian Federation of App Based Transport Workers (IFABT) said, “Swiggy has introduced batch order, which means that in a single trip delivery executive has to deliver more than one order. However, in the second order the delivery executives are paid as low as Rs. 10 per delivery whereas the company collects Rs. 35 from the customer.”

Due to the increase in fuel prices the delivery executives of Swiggy are demanding that at least the executives should get Rs 25 per km.

 Further, Shaik Salauddin said, “Even the government on other hand is increasing the fuel price repeatedly. Even in this situation of rise in virus cases and petrol prices Swiggy has reduced our earning structure. Even though we are delivering food to the customers we are unable to take food to our own homes and families. Therefore, delivery executives are forced to go on indefinite strike. We will continue the strike until our demands are met.

The delivery executives have asked transport authorities to intervene in this matter and restore the previous payout structure.
