Delivery boys now earn anything between ₹ 25,000 and ₹ 50,000 per month, depending on factors such as the number of deliveries completed and the distance they cover. It’s a sharp increase from the ₹ 10,000-25,000 the workers earned last year.The sharp rise in incomes depict the boom in the Indian online food delivery market, that is expected to grow three times in size over the next three years from $700 million in 2017, according to RedSeer Consulting.

“As Swiggy continues to witness a strong growth in the number of monthly orders, our delivery partners have been able to carry out a higher number of deliveries,” a spokesperson for Swiggy said by email. “Since they are paid per order, the increase in number of orders fulfilled by them has resulted in an increase in pay-outs," he added.

Uber Eats India head Bhavik Rathod said that incentives for the company’s delivery staff on hours they work and also depend on areas where they deliver. For instance, neighbourhoods such as Indiranagar and Koramangala in Bengaluru typically have higher volumes of orders, compared to other parts of the city. Delivery staff typically complete more deliveries in such areas in a given amount of time, thus earning higher incentives.
