Reports suggest that they have tied up with Swiggy for the initiative. 

Speaking about the same, the Superintendent of Viyyur jail, said:  

We are going online for the first time. We started selling chappathis in 2011. The idea of going online was proposed by jail DGP Rishiraj Singh. 

The combo that's a hit because of its low prices and taste has been selling like hot pancakes. 


Over 25,000 chapatis and 500 biryanis a day, prepared by over 100 inmates, are sold everyday.
