Mumbai's dabbawalas or lunch-box carriers have urged the Maharashtra government to permit them to travel in local trains, which are currently running in a restricted manner. Access to local trains will enable dabbawalas to resume their business with full capacity. Currently, dabbawalas who can reach the South Mumbai area on their cycles are able to deliver food to offices.
‘We have also been demanding financial assistance of '5,000 per dabbawala from the state government.'
