Hotels in Vijayawada have banned Swiggy app citing an increase in commission. Earlier, Swiggy used to collect 10 to 15 per cent as commission from hotels. Now the app has increased commission up to 25 per cent. The reason for hiking commission was payment of salaries to delivery drivers, maintenance costs of the website and mobile app. Even, Hyderabad hoteliers want to ban food delivery apps. Representatives of the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) held talks with Swiggy and asked them not to increase commission more than 25 per cent. But, there was no response from Swiggy, the NRAI said.
