Apps that deliver food On Wednesday, Zomato and Swiggy reported a temporary statewide outage that looked to be caused by a problem with Amazon Web Services, which many online platforms rely on.

Zomato Care acknowledged the downtime and apologised for the inconvenience in response to a customer complaint.
People posted screenshots of the Zomato app that was not operating, with several claiming that money had been removed from their accounts. It’s best not to order food from Zomato or Swiggy until both firms affirm that their services are operational again. This is because your payment may be deducted, but your meal may not be delivered since the order may not be placed owing to a technical issue.
In terms of the technological explanation, both Swiggy and Zomato rely on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which is believed to be experiencing a server issue, creating downtime for its clients such as Swiggy, Zomato, and others.
Hi there. We're currently unable to process your request as we're experiencing technical constraints. Not to worry, our best minds are on it and we'll be up and running soon.

The two platforms, each worth approximately $10 billion, control India’s online food delivery sector in a duopoly that drew the attention of India’s antitrust authorities only this week.
The Competition Commission of India (CCI) announced on Monday that it had ordered an investigation into both businesses’ apps to see if they were “neutral,” according to Reuters.
The order came months after the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) requested that the CCI probe the businesses for allegedly violating platform neutrality by giving exclusive contractors priority.
The National Restaurant Association of America (NRAI), which represents over 500,000 restaurants across the country, had urged the CCI to look into the two corporations for allegedly giving some eateries priority.
