Zomato that runs the popular Zomato Gold programme has asked its restaurant partners to serve a notice of 45 days if they wish to opt out of the same. This move comes after hundreds of restaurants in Delhi, Mumbai and Gurugram pulled out of the programme amid growing unrest between the restaurant industries and online ordering platforms.

Zomato wrote a mail to its Gold partner restaurants and said that they were required to give a 45-day notice to ensure smooth transition for its users. It also added that if these members wish to sign back, then they would be required to pay a sign-up fee.

According to a report, Zomato wrote in its e-mail, “The decision to join and continue with this partnership has been completely yours just like all the other decisions you make to run your business effectively and efficiently. With a view to make sure we protect user experience, we would request you to let us know proactively in case you are thinking of going off the programme for a brief period, as we will not like your users to have a poor experience when they visit your restaurant. As per the contract, you are required to give us a 45 days’ notice for this change to ensure a smooth transition for users.”

Led by National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI), as many as 300 restaurants in Gurugram on Thursday said that they would pull out of the membership-driven dining apps including Dineout, EazyDiner (Prime), nearbuy and magicpin. This move is aimed to end steep discounting practices implemented by such platforms.
According to the daily, platforms other than Zomato have expressed that they are willing to have a dialogue with the restaurant partners.

Zomato Gold has 1 million subscribers and around 6,500 restaurant partners. The company had recently also introduced Infinity Dining for its Gold members that allows the users to have unlimited a la carte at the partner restaurants.

New Delhi: Elon Musk is back with a bang with his all-new “Cybertruck”. Irrespective of the controversies the all-new Tesla Cybertruck has gathered, it is one of the most radical wheels that has gone on sale in recent times and is becoming quite popular by the day.

Elon Musk took to Twitter to share that Tesla has already received 200k orders since the launch of the “Cybertruck” which was actually 3 days ago(22 November).

Tesla Cybertruck’s production is expected to begin in late 2020. The electric pickup truck is available in three trims — single motor RWD with a range of over 250 miles, dual-motor AWD with a range of more than 300 miles and tri-motor AWD with a range in the north of 500 miles.

The single motor RWD variant of the Cybertruck can go from 0 to 60 mph in below 6.5 seconds and has a towing capacity of over 7,500 pounds, while the dual-motor AWD trim can make 0-60 mph in under 4.5 seconds and boasts of a towing capacity of more than 10,000 pounds. Tesla claims that the tri-motor AWD variant of the vehicle is good for 0-60 mph in less than 2.9 seconds and gets a towing capacity of 14,000 pounds.

Given its relative performance and price, the Cybertruck could be a massive success for Tesla as it enters into the largest segment in the US market. Almost three million pickups were sold to consumers in 2018. If Tesla can carve off a tiny sliver of that, it’ll go a long way toward taking Tesla’s annual sales to the next level.
