Food apps can't set discounts: Restaurants

Restaurants are willing to pay food aggregators for reservation and delivery but won’t let them dictate discounts, the head of a national body of restaurants said on Monday, hardening its stance on the ongoing move by eating joints logging out of platforms operated by apps. Challenging deep discounting practices of online food aggregators, the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) last week claimed 1,200 restaurants had delisted themselves from online platforms, including Zomato, Eazydiner and Nearbuy under the #Logout campaign. On Monday, several restaurant owners put the number even higher at 2,200.
