The delivery partners of Swiggy aren’t happy about the company’s new regulations.
Story so far: Swiggy has changed some of its incentive policies. Earlier, it used to pay ₹250 plus an additional ₹125 for part-time agents and ₹475 plus an additional ₹250 incentive for full-timers per day. Now, the company has allegedly cancelled this and increased working hours. They now have to work longer hours to take more orders.
- One agent said the new rules mandate a minimum of 60 orders a week for part-timers to earn ₹3,000 and 180 orders for full-timers to earn ₹13,500 a week.
- The payments will be made based on the number of orders completed. Hence, they’ll need to take as many orders and work additional hours.
Calculation: As one agent put it, to reach 180 orders a week, an agent has to take 26 orders in one day. That could account for 18 hours and riding more than 200 km per day.
