In the three months to March, average monthly transacting clients were slightly higher. At 15.7 million, compared to 15.3 million in the preceding quarter. Since the last week of April, Zomato has seen some strain on the availability of delivery partners in select metropolitan cities in the current quarter.
“We think this is short-term in nature. As the post-COVID-19 economic recovery has brought back jobs in cities. And we lost some delivery partners to such jobs. On top of it, all the workforce which migrated to their hometowns during the first COVID-19 wave, hasn’t yet come back to the cities for work , thus hampering our delivery partner acquisition rate,” it added.
