Online restaurant guide and food ordering platform Zomato on Saturday said it is introducing up to ten days of ‘period leaves’ for all women employees to build a more inclusive work culture in the organisation.

“At Zomato, we want to foster a culture of trust, truth and acceptance. Starting today, all women (including transgender people) at Zomato can avail up to 10 days of period leaves in a year,” Zomato Founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal said in a blog post.

There shouldn’t be any shame or stigma attached to applying for a period leave. You should feel free to tell people on internal groups, or emails that you are on your period leave for the day, he added.
