Most netizens are extremely annoyed with this notice and they are furious with the building authorities. “If the delivery boys are carrying a certain weight they cannot be denied a lift, that's the Human rights convention of which India is a signatory.” “Do the people who have put a ban believe that Zomato or Swiggy provide their Delivery Boy with extra nutrients to climb 10-20 floors for every 2nd or 3rd delivery?”
There are people who have even supported the notice. “What is wrong in this notice? During pandemic times, everyone is scared of outsiders entering their buildings/lifts…”
Some netizens have also asked for the reason behind the discrimination. Since the pandemic has forced people to stay indoors for quite a long time, many are opting for food delivery services and this notice has irked public a lot. What is your take on this?
