MoHUA ties up with Swiggy to take street food vendors online


As part of the Prime Minister’s Street Vendor’s Atmanirbhar Nidhi Scheme, the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs has entered into an MoU with food ordering and delivery platform Swiggy to onboard street food vendors on its e-commerce platform giving them online access to thousands of consumers.

The MoU was exchanged by Joint Secretary Sanjay Kumar and Rahul Bothra, Chief Financial Officer of Swiggy, through a webinar in the presence of Durga Shanker Mishra, Secretary, (MoHUA), and senior officials of Swiggy and the ministry.

To begin with, MoHUA and Swiggy will run a pilot program by on-boarding 250 vendors across five cities namely, Ahmadabad, Chennai, Delhi, Indore, and Varanasi. The street vendors will be helped with PAN and FSSAI registration, training on technology/ partner app usage, menu digitization and pricing, hygiene, and packaging best practices.

Upon the successful completion of the pilot, MoHUA and Swiggy plan to expand this initiative across the country in phases.
