Rushing in to serve hot pizza cost Dominos Rs 1.15 lakh

NEW DELHI: Dominos promise to home deliver steaming hot pizzas within 30 minutes has cost it dearly with a road mishap tribunal ordering it to pay Rs 1.15 lakh to a school student injured gravely by one of its motorcycle-borne delivery boys rushing rashly to serve an order last year.

Motor Accident Claims Tribunal (MACT) Judge Dinesh Bhatt ordered Dominos Pizza India to pay the compensation to the tenth standard boy, holding that he was hit by the firm's motorcycle driven by its delivery boy Ravi Mishra in a rash and negligent manner.

"In view of the unrebutted testimony of the petitioner (school boy) and the documents available on record, it is prima facie proved that he suffered injuries due to rash and negligent driving of respondent no. 1 (driver of Dominos vehicle)," MACT Judge Bhatt said, ordering payment of damages.

On October 29, 2010, the minor child, who was studying in 10th standard, was hit by the offending vehicle when he was riding his bicycle in Delhi University's north campus.

The accident took place near Khalsa College when the vehicle hit the boy from behind. Following the mishap, both the boy and the Dominos delivery man fell off and received injuries. They were taken to Hindu Rao hospital for treatment.

The teenager, a resident of Delhi University's staff quarters, had received several injuries including fractures on his thigh, eyebrows and other head and body injuries.

The court ordered Dominos to pay a total of Rs 1,14,682 as compensation to the injured boy.

The offending motorcycle being insured with the Reliance General Insurance, the compensation amount will be paid by the insurance firm.

this type of service, "thirty minutes nahi to free" is very dangerous, especially to the delivery boys
and this particular area, that connects DU north campus to azadpur mandi is highly traffic infested, such type of practices can harm people on road in India

Wiki says

Starting in 1973, Domino's Pizza had a guarantee that customers would receive their pizzas within 30 minutes of placing an order, or they would receive the pizzas free. The guarantee was reduced to $3 off in the mid 1980s. In 1992, the company settled a lawsuit brought by the family of an Indiana woman who had been killed by a Domino's delivery driver, paying the family $2.8 million. In another 1993 lawsuit, brought by a woman who was injured when a Domino's delivery driver ran a red light and collided with her vehicle, the woman was awarded nearly $80 million, but accepted a payout of $15 million.[47] The guarantee was dropped that same year because of the "public perception of reckless driving and irresponsibility", according to Monaghan.[47]
In December 2007, Domino's introduced a new slogan, "You Got 30 Minutes", alluding to the earlier pledge but stopping short of promising delivery in a half hour.[
