Zomato Vice President Rakesh Ranjan said, "We are happy to serve people in Odisha. They can now use the Jomato platform for liquor in addition to grocery and food items from us.

He said that the company is working closely with the Excise Department to ensure adherence to safety instructions. Besides, consumption and identity verification system is also being prepared so that only the eligible person can order and consume it.
