The iconic Chandni Chowk market will soon be online via ‘Delhi Bazaar’, ET Retail


A virtual market called ‘Delhi Bazaar’ is being created by the government in order to give the city’s signature markets global exposure. It is an attempt to bring together all the popular stores in Delhi on a single virtual platform to enable people from across the world to explore Delhi’s iconic bazars (markets) and even purchase as per preference.

The ‘Delhi Bazaar’ portal will be promoted by the Delhi government. The ‘Chandni Chowk Shopping Festival’ at Rangpuri was attended by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday as the chief guest. The event was jointly organised by Chandni Chowk’s traders and the Chamber of Trade and Industry (CTI), featuring various shops from clothing and accessories to eateries.

“Our government is pro-business and pro-industry. We have made numerous efforts to eliminate red tape and promote business growth. Our plan is to beautify other markets in Delhi, similar to Chandni Chowk so that more people visit them and business flourishes,” news agency ANI quoted the Delhi CM said.

“If the government system is simplified, and opportunities are provided to businessmen and entrepreneurs, undoubtedly, we (India) can surpass China,” he added.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal interacted with the shopkeepers, visited each shop and appreciated the efforts of businessmen and traders at Chandni Chowk.

“This is a great initiative, and in future, we can organise such festivals in different parts of Delhi. We can hold such events market-wise and sector-wise so that buyers and sellers can interact with each other,” the CM said.
