“All deliveries to such customers will be contactless by default to ensure the safety of our riders, and subsequent customers. Needless to say, all customers should opt in for contactless deliveries right now. A big thank you to the entire restaurant industry for joining hands to serve our customers who need us the most right now,” he said.
