NEW DELHI: Ordering food from online food delivery services like Swiggy and Zomato is likely to be more costly in the coming days. A meeting of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) council committee will be held on Friday in which a decision on this issue will be taken.

As per reports, the meeting is going to be held in Lucknow. Another meeting of the committee was held via video conferencing on June 12. Besides online food delivery services, the GST council committee meeting on September 17 is expected to discuss other topics like fuel prices (petrol and diesel).

It may be mentioned that a survey report published in December last year had said Zomato and Swiggy are leading the food delivery race in India, yet many prefer ordering directly through quick-service restaurant (QSR) mobile apps — such as McDonald's, KFC, Burger King and more. According to the survey conducted by Market research company YouGov, a majority of urban Indians have downloaded their favourite QSR's app, and many claim their order frequency has increased since then.

The survey showed that when it comes to food delivery from QSR chains; three in five urban Indians (60 per cent) prefer ordering food through apps such as Zomato and Swiggy. According to the report, 35 per cent choose to place their order directly through a restaurant's mobile app or online through its website (26 per cent). A few (18 per cent) prefer ordering through both food aggregator as well as restaurant apps. When it comes to quick-service restaurants, (62 per cent) urban Indians claim to have the mobile apps of their favourite chains.
