Westlife Development, which operates McDonald's restaurants in the southern and western region in India, on Tuesday said it is re-starting the dine-in operations in Maharashtra after remaining shut for over six months due to COVID-19.

The company has left no stone unturned to ensure a completely safe and hygienic experience for its employees and customers," it said in a regulatory filing. Saurabh Kalra, Chief Operating Officer, McDonald's India (West and South), said the dine-in operations in the state are opening after more than 6 months and the company is committed to making the experience completely safe, hygienic, and special for its customers.
