In July, Zomato began its IPO at Rs 9,375 crores. New shares priced at between Rs 72 and Rs 76 were being issued as part of the IPO. The company filed for an IPO of up to Rs 8,250 crores back in April this year, after witnessing such a surge in online food orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Zomato renamed its Gold membership to Pro back in 2020 with exclusive delivery offers for the Pro members. It included priority delivery on Zomato. This meant that any order placed by a Pro member will automatically be placed at the front of the real-time queue.
