On-demand delivery platform Swiggy on Monday said that under its ‘Swiggy Suraksha’ initiative, a special care package is being provided to its delivery partners affected with Covid-19, which includes support of Rs 14,000 for two weeks so that they do not worry about earning a livelihood during the recovery period.

If partners choose to, Swiggy will also provide doorstep delivery of homestyle meals prepared in the company’s cloud kitchens in cities such as Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Chennai.

The delivery partners and their families who test positive will receive enhanced hospitalization cover of up to Rs 1.5 lakh, the company said in a statement.

In addition, Swiggy has also enhanced life insurance cover to Rs 5 lakh in the event of an untimely death of a delivery partner due to Covid-19.

Separately, Swiggy will provide income support for one week for delivery partners during bereavement (death of dependents/ parents/ siblings/ grandparents).

This is not limited to Covid-19-related bereavement, the company said.

The company has built a microsite, ‘ Swiggy Suraksha’, within the Swiggy delivery partner app. Through this, it aims to ensure delivery partners have access to and understand the support that Swiggy is providing.

Throughout the pandemic, Swiggy has introduced several initiatives, including in-app access to free telemedicine consultations, vaccination cover, and loss of pay cover during vaccination, among others.
