This is so unfair for the lakhs of ticketless travellers, they should be green with envy when Zomato delivers food to the Half seated RAC guy, who paid double the berth's worth, just because he is privileged to have a PNR

I had zomato gold and pro and shit for almost two yrs. In the last 6 or 8 months I didn't use it at all due to the lack of well priced options compared to local ones. So after expiry of membership their used to be an option of renewal for 100 bucks for 3 months. Didn't bother about it. And now it's jacked upto 949 for 3 months. I mean, what kind of nonsense is this? Who in his senses would pay 949 for something which was available for 100 bucks? Its ridiculous.
