Less than two years after Uber Technologies Inc. entered India’s competitive food-delivery business, it’s in talks to sell its Uber Eats operations in the country to rival Swiggy, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.
The talks between Uber and Bangalore-based Bundl Technologies Pvt, which owns the Swiggy brand, are progressing and a deal could be sealed within the coming weeks, said the person, who is privy to the discussions but asked not to be identified because the negotiations are confidential.
Swiggy which is believed to be one of the best communicating online food providers whom you can witness everywhere in Social media now replied to a online user as well.
Ankit said that more than Swiggy, Uber and Food Panda Mom’s cooking is best in his tweet.
Uber Eats ❌
Food Panda ❌

To this Swiggy who is expected to come with a reply that confronts Ankit’s tweet, decided to come up with a humble tweet in which they said that they have lost the race with Moms. Mansi, the employer of Swiggy said “We’re out of contention when it comes to competing with mom’s food, but if you insist, we’ll take second place😉 #sweetsilver ^Mansi”

Coming back to Swiggy owning Zomato a spokesperson said in email that Swiggy doesn’t comment on “market rumors or speculation,” while Uber didn’t immediately respond to email and Whatsapp messages seeking comment on Sunday.
Swiggy has been in trouble more than once, where people think that they recently have crossed all limits when a Chennai customer received blood stained band aid in his ordered food.
This man in Chennai named Balamurugan Deenadayalan ordered chicken schezwan chopsuey from a restaurant named Chops N Stix and everything went fine till he began eating his food.
Halfway into his meal, he noticed that there was a bloody, used bandaid in his food and was shocked and disgusted beyond imagination. He then tried to call the restaurant to inform them about his contaminated food.
