Bhubnaeswar, May 27: Popular national brand food aggregators Zomato and Swiggy who were allowed to home deliver liquor as per the recent order of the Odisha government are now seeking details of Aadhar card and other government documents.
These mobile application-run services are now seeking the Aadhar number or ID of other government verified documents to confirm the age of the alcohol seeker who want to home deliver their set of liquor from wine shops.
As per the protocol followed by these players, the customers are bound to furnish the ID numbers of either Aadhar card, driving licence, voter card, PAN card or others to do their one time verification for ordering liquor through their apps. This will be similar to hotel check-ins where a copy of government ID cards are preserved in their files and database for future reference.
These apps after getting clearance from the state government have now added the new feature of delivering liquor at doorsteps. The customers can now order their liquor requirements between 9am to 6pm through this apps.
Now available in selected cities like Bhubaneswar and Rourkela, the services are likely to be expanded to other cities soon. The apps will deliver orders from only licences shops and those who tie up with them.
