The delisting of restaurants have been carried out across all 34 cities where the firm has presence.
Zomato has also provided an extended date, which is until September end for those restaurants which are top rated, but does not have licence to show.
This move came after FSSAI issued a directive to delist food businesses, which do not possess licence from the regulator.
Zomato will also run mandatory hygiene checks, following the food safety and hygiene checklist, before listing any cloud kitchen on its platform. These hygiene checks are conducted by accredited third party auditors who are experts at this, press release said.
Deepinder Goyal, founder and chief executive officer, Zomato wrote in a blog, "Zomato has already delisted hundreds of restaurants from its food ordering platform for not being compliant with FSSAI norms on food safety and hygiene. As and when these restaurants provide us their FSSAI licenses, we will enable them for online ordering services."
