Zomato on Saturday instituted a policy which would give its female employees up to 10 days of menstrual leave per year, as part of an effort to combat stigma around the issue.

 “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.” Zomato chief Deepinder Goyal said in an email to staff.
