Mumbai Dabbawalas are famous across the globe for their accurate services. Because of their accuracy, they have also delivered their lecture on management at Harvard University. However, the pandemic spread across the globe has dried up their entire income.
“We are facing a financial crisis like situation due to this lockdown. We do not have any other source of income now, most of the dabbawalas have returned to their native places. Their condition worsened after cyclone Nisarga which has ruined their houses and fields.”
Mumbai Dabbawala association proposed the Maharashtra government to help each dabbawala with a support of Rs. 5000/- The government actually proposed a sum of Rs. 2000/- for each dabbawala. However, their argument is that it is not affordable to live in a Metro City like Mumbai with a sum of Rs. 2000/-
These dabbawalas are the ones who ensure timely delivery of homely food! But right now, they are suffering a lot. We hope that the government admits their demand and helps them whole-heartedly!
