Home services marketplace Urban Company has urged the government to relax norms for essential services amid the lockdown, a move that will allow consumers to avail services from within their homes while helping thousands of self-employed professionals to start earning their livelihoods again.

Urban Company, formerly known as Urban Clap, provides access to home services like repairs, servicing of appliances and pest control by trained professionals through its platform.

Urban Company co-founder and CEO Abhiraj Bhal noted that many state governments have allowed economic activity to resume in a gradual and measured fashion in the second phase of the lockdown that is slated to end on May 3.
