Zomato founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal took to X (formerly Twitter) on June 13 to share good news. He announced that on June 12 in Mumbai, Zomato broke the Guinness World Record for conducting the largest first aid session at a single venue, together with 4300 delivery partners. The company’s 30,000 delivery partners are now professionally trained to provide medical help during roadside emergencies.

He gave a big salute and thanked these Emergency Heroes of India. This mega first aid lesson which took place at Nesco, Goregaon in Mumbai. It was the biggest on-the-ground first aid training programme ever held across the world. Zomato chose five delivery agents to work with their core team for two months at their Gurugram headquarters ahead of the event.

Netizens Have Mixed Reactions; Kunal Kamra Unimpressed

Many took to the comments section to hail the food delivery platform on its recent achievement. @TopDriverIndia called it a valuable gesture. And also suggested driver education or training for riders for their safety and well-being. The X user stated that many considered food delivery riders, risky drivers.

@kainkareswar said that he has seen many Zomato and Swiggy riders meet with accidents due to drunk drivers. So, he recommended Goyal provide them with arm and knee guards. Some even hoped the delivery executives have accident insurance. 

However, standup comedian Kunal Kamra called Goyal “a hack”. He asked the Zomato CEO to declare the number of delivery partners with their average income and reveal their working hours over the last 3 months. Another X user criticised the platform’s customer care service and showed his displeasure on the fact that riders don’t have fixed salaries.
