Earlier this months, a Delhi court had issued a summons to food delivery app Zomato in a civil suit seeking a restraining order against the company from continuing its services allowing users to order "hot and authentic food" from "iconic restaurants" across the national capital.

The court was hearing a plea filed by a Gurugram resident, which claimed Zomato was engaging in the "false and fraudulent" practice of delivering fresh food from well-known restaurants under its sub-category, 'Dilli ke Legends'.

On 8 February, Zomato reported a quarterly profit that beat market expectations on Thursday, aided by increased demand during the men's Cricket World Cup and the festive period.

Shares, which had climbed 22% in the December quarter, rose more than 3% after Zomato posted a profit for the third straight quarter.

According to reports, Indian consumers ordered in more during the men's Cricket World Cup, which took place between 5 October and 19 November. This, coupled with the festive season, when Zomato and its Softbank-backed rival Swiggy bring in a lion's share of their yearly sales, helped boost the topline.

Zomato stock price went up today, 23 February 2024, by 1.51 %. The stock closed at 162 per share.
